• Stewarding technologies for collaboration, community building and knowledge sharing in development
    Vol 3 No 1 (2007)
    This edition of the Knowledge Management for Development Journal explores how international development practitioners find new ways to work together using Internet technologies. The lens used in all the articles foregrounds human processes; technologies take a complementary and interdependent role. In the framing of this space between design and deployment of tools, we pay attention to both technology and social practices that groups and communities use in their application of technologies to their work.

  • Approaches to promote knowledge sharing in international development organisations
    Vol 1 No 2 (2005)
    Guest Editors: Allison Hewlitt, Doug Horton, Nathan Russell and Simone Staiger-Rivas with Lucie Lamoureux International development organisations and their national and local partners are creating a wealth of knowledge that can help the poor build sustainable livelihoods. However, this knowledge, for one reason or another, is often retained by individuals and groups and is not widely shared within or among organisations. A great deal has been written about approaches to promote knowledge sharing, and knowledge management in general, within the private sector – particularly in multinational corporations. In contrast, there is much less documentation on approaches that have been developed or adapted and applied in public and non-governmental organisations. This issue of the KM4D Journal presents papers on experiences with knowledge sharing in international development organisations, highlighting strategies and approaches used to foster knowledge sharing in diverse settings and presenting their results.
