2 WHAT is Knowledge Management? "The capabilities by which communities within an organisation capture the knowledge that is critical to them, constantly improve it and make it available in the most effective manner to those who need it, so that they can exploit it creatively to add value as a normal part of their work" GlaxoSmithKline ---------------------------------------- "Knowledge Management is the discipline of enabling individuals, teams and entire organisations to collectively and systematically create, share and apply knowledge, to better achieve their objectives" Ron Young, CEO/CKO Knowledge Associates International ------------------------------------------

3 What does KM mean in IFAD? “IFAD recognizes that knowledge management is the collection of systems, processes and procedures designed to acquire and share the intellectual and knowledge based assets of the organization and its stakeholders. IFAD also recognizes that a central facet of this vision is the staff, project participants, governments, financial and development institutions, civil society organizations and the private sector. “This means sharing lessons learned from our own experiences, by capturing and using the insights and knowledge of others and by constantly reinventing ourselves in the light of evolving circumstances. IFAD recognizes the need for credible, authoritative and convincing evidence to underpin our programme and policy initiatives; the existence of extensive knowledge on rural poverty; and the need to develop our capacity and culture to absorb and contribute to knowledge” (IFAD 2007)
