KariaNet I: Strengthened use of IT in nine participating projects through establishment of project websites, internet connectivity, and training of staff members on IT use; Developed the capacity of 9 IFAD-funded projects to document and share knowledge, (including both print documentation and video making). Strengthened networking among member projects
KariaNet II: Goal Enhance the effectiveness of development projects and programs that serve to enable the rural poor to overcome their poverty
KariaNet II Specific Objectives: Build KariaNet II based on the achievements of KariaNet I and expand it to reach more members in MENA region: consolidation and expansion Implement applied research projects and community projects to ensure that Knowledge Management products on agricultural development reach a broader audience in MENA; Innovation Develop and test a business model which will allow KariaNet II to devolve as a sustainable and viable network. Incremental devolution and Sustainability
New in KariaNet II Expanding in Geography : 10 Countries Focussed in thematic networks: KM-KS in Food Security and Rural Enterprise Development and a cross cutting network Open to IFAD and IDRC Project PLUS to other initiatives, projects and programs Aiming at policy information/influence on value added of mainstreaming KM KS in rural development

What KariaNet II IS NOT? Not a vertical and centralized network Not working with communities as the project and organizations involved in the Network are well positioned to do so Not setting the country strategies for KM KS every country team and national network is well positioned to do so Not in isolation from ongoing initiatives or forthcoming opportunities in each country Not restricted to work with selected stakeholders Not a knowledge fabric on technical innovation in Food security and Rural Enterprise Development but on knowledge management in these two priority thematics
Network Organization Facilitating team in IDRC Cairo in coordination with IFAD NENA Division in Rome Two parallel and inter related tracks: * NATIONAL NETWORKS in EACH of the TEN countries * REGIONAL NETWORK
The thematic networks moderated by regional committee are emerging but need a strong boost The pillars of the network are the projects and their boundary partners and their needs are targets of KariaNet National Roadmaps are the guiding documents and are developed by the country nodes
