The Knowledge Sharing Project of the ICT-KM Program is proud to announce the active participation of the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) in the upcoming Knowledge Sharing Workshop. 15 FARA staff and focal points of the Regional Agricultural Information & Learning System (RAILS) will participate in the event, that will held its face-to-face meeting early May 2008 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. “Our particular interest in this workshop is how to strengthen the RAILS’ team capacity to facilitate knowledge sharing among and within national RAILS network and our main expectations are that key RAILS team are capable of sharing their lessons learnt from this exercise to their fellow network members as well as document their learning appropriately that can facilitate dissemination”, states Myra Wopereis-Pura, the RAILS coordinator. 

The workshop is now fully booked with 40 participants for its on-line phase and around 22 participants for the face-to-face meeting.  We warmly welcome all 21 participants from CGIAR partner organizations, our colleagues from FAO, as well as the 19 CGIAR staff.
The Workshop starts with a first on-line phase on March 24.
