Some of what ILRI does in/with knowledge management and communication

In relation with the focused discussion that recently looked at the kind of knowledge sharing activities that take place in our organisations (initiated by Gauri and Nancy on the Dgroup list), hereby a list of posts that relate to what ILRI (International Livestock Research Institute) does in this field. 

All these posts are on our 'Maarifa' blog - a blog which specifically focuses on communication and KM work at and around ILRI. Not all posts mention ILRI work, they also relate to presentations given at ILRI (e.g. by Digital Green on community video). The posts in bold are those that relate more to some of the work we do in the field of comms/KM.

Hello Sheila,

Sorry I was on leave last week. Anyway, thanks for your interest. All the above links are open access so you can just browse through them. No need to join ILRI for that ;)

If you let me know what are the main questions you have re: your KM strategy perhaps I can assist further. It's a bit broad a question for now. Happy to help further based on your additional information.

Dear Ewen,

Thanks for the posts on what ILRI does with Knowledge Management and Communication. I am new in the area of KM and have been requested by my organization Kenya Forestry Research Institute (KEFRI) to lead a team to develop and implement a Knowledge Management Strategy for KEFRI.

First I would like to have access to any of the articles you have posted above. is it possible? Can i get onto to Maarifa blob or do I have to be staff of ILRI?

Do you have any useful articles or links that will help. Your assistance will be much appreciated

We all get a great deal out of our engagement in KM4Dev. Maybe you would be happy to express appreciation through a regular voluntary contribution. Crowd funding works!
