The articles in this Special Issue represent some of the outputs of the Knowledge Management Impact Challenge (KMIC) unConference which took place during May 2011 inWashington, DC, USA. The KMIC was an initiative of the Knowledge-Driven Microenterprise Development (KDMD) Project of the US Agency for International Development (USAID). The KMIC has been an important initiative because it has been a concerted effort to gain understanding of what has been happening in the area of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of knowledge management across the development knowledge system. The KMIC cycle has involved a widespread call for cases, peer review of the 47 cases by a group of experts, presentation and review at the unConference and, finally, followup and crystallizing the learning with formal publication in this Special Issue.
