…then you should have attended the session on ‘KM strategies and activities for rural development’ that took place in the India Room on Thursday 22nd January from 13:45-15:00 at the Share Fair—or you can at least find out a bit of what went on in the session by reading this blog post.

The session began with a short verbal presentation of two projects on the topics of:

  1. Embedding KM tools such as documenting learning and systematisation in rural development projects—IFAD
  2. Sharing knowledge to do things better: embedding KM strategy in rural development projescts–IFAD-PAMA

Some highlights from the presentations included:

  • workshop was a key instrument used through the project–particularly thematic workshops
  • capturing interesting stories from the field and publishing them using the website and also local media
  • study tours and exchanges between one community and another
  • project website (but more for purpose of collating the materials from the project rather than for daily work)
  • video on the program and its experiences–targetted at bringing visibility to the program and the issue of market linkages to top of national agenda
  • invited politicians to be invovled in a number of visable events–to capture their attention
  • policy workshops, working groups
