Dear Muhammad, The topic is quite important for any development practitioner but unfortunately there is no quality literature available in public domain.I have listed few documents in previous post. However on conference part, it was mostly on project specific documents i.e. program implementation manuals, annual work plan and budget, logical frameworks and gender strategies of IFAD supported projects in India. There was no special literature developed except few presentations by IFAD Country team (Judith-Gender and KM Focal point and Shaheel-M&E Focal Point). We had planned to develop a methodological framework and guidelines for IFAD project staff but I am not sure wether it is developed on not. I suggest you to visit IFAD website.

Best wishes for your research

Thank you and best regards

Dear Sophie Alvarez, Thank you for your quick reply as Judith has given the background of the workshop, ".....cross cutting issues were not being integrated enough at all levels and felt that such an approach needed to be thought out with practitioners...."  we will shortly revert on the report, Meantime I suggest to you to kindly review the very important papers (available on internet)

  1. Patrick Lamb's paper on Using KPI in Knowledge Management 
  2. IKM Background Paper, Monitoring and evaluating knowledge management strategies.
  3. United Nations Trust Fund in Support of Actions to Eliminate Violence against Women's paper  Monitoring, Evaluation and Knowledge Management Framework

I will try share the literature available in either in public domain and gathered by reference and reading purpose of mine.  Hope this will help you.

Thanks & Regards

Hello Dilipsing and Judith- i am very interested in this report (especially the parts of integrating M&E and KM)- can you share? Am interested in all aspects of it- the design and background of the workshop, the theory behind doing this integration for enhancing project performance, etc... We (in both my teams- CPWF and CIAT) work in related issues. Do you know of any colleagues' (or your own) publications related to this integration(s)?

Hi Joan and Joanna, thanks for the support. We at the Country Office of IFAD in India (I am the Gender and KM Focal Point while my colleague is the M&E Focal Point)  felt that cross cutting issues were not being integrated enough at all levels and felt that such an approach needed to be thought out with practitioners. This was also the first time we tried to do this in IFAD itself. These practitioners are our project staff who are the front line workers and who have the maximum knowledge of issues. What we tried to do is to look at M&E and KM together and then M&E and Gender together. Once these were sorted out, we worked as a group to understand gender in KM.  We ended with looking at how each of them integrate and overlap in project implementation. Am still in the middle of writing out the report and can share parts of  it with you. Cheers, Judith

What a great initiative! It would be wonderful to learn more. The IFAD Asia website is closed - and intended only for those who work on IFAD related projects. It would be wonderful if you could share further information about the workshop - materials used? how they approached the topic?

That looks like a great idea. I would love to know how it goes, what take-up you get and how it is used! Joanna
