1 Capacity Development through Knowledge sharing on EU cooperation and development

2 Knowledge Sharing:What is capacity4dev?

3 capacity4dev.eu: European Commission’s Knowledge Sharing Platform on Development and Cooperation Capacity4dev.eu = Capacity Development through Knowledge Sharing! 4 pillars : 1.Consolidate knowledge and build Institutional Memory 2.Support Thematic Expertise, bridge the silos, Support good practice and innovation exchange/ help identify specialists 3.Enable cross-learning among practitioners from EC, EEAS, MS, Donors, International Organisations, private sector, CSOs, Governments, Academia… 4.Consolidate multiple knowledge sharing tools and communities of practice around a common environment

4 1. Consolidate knowledge and build Institutional Memory 20% staff leaves the organisation each year 50% of staff on short term contracts or externals 90% of the knowledge leaves the organisation when they leave What is left behind ? Few notes, official documents in Unit drives/ ARES and … a big mailbox !  Short Institutional memory =>Constant reinventing of the wheel … How to tackle the loss of knowledge ? -Transfer important knowledge exchanges from to capacity4dev.eu -Capitalise on your knowledge through capacity4dev.eu groups

5 2.1. Support Thematic Expertise Expertise scattered: Need to establish Thematic networks. But …many of the Thematic Networks still run on  Hi workload for few people running the network and inefficiency of as a knowlledge sharing tool: loss of memory C4D: decentralised knowledge sharing through groups, the platform does the ing, knowledge shared stays an builds-up in groups

6 2.2 bridge the silos, Support good practice and innovation exchange Thematic experts often work in Silos: No time to see what is happening in other Themes even it often has a direct impact on their work:  Hard to see the big picture C4D: Content categorised by one or more Theme / Region – Country

7 2.3 help identify specialists Even within Thematics often people are not fully aware of what other colleagues are doing:  Collaboration opportunities missed C4D: People section: Find colleagues interested or with expertise on specific themes or regions then Contact them or Join/Start a group on a specific Theme or region and start sharing.

8 3. Enable cross-learning among practitioners EC, EEAS, MS, Donors, Int. Organisations, private sector, CSOs, Governments, Academia… Few opportunities for HQ and Delegation staff to meet and exchange with peers / experts from other organisations Only through few annual gatherings / workshops and personal networks  Our knowledge remains often confined in-house and is not made available/ used by others  Knowledge from other practitioners doesn’t reach us C4D : share your knowledge and make it available to other practitioners through groups. Use capacity4dev.eu to find knowledge and learn from others

9 4. Consolidate multiple knowledge sharing tools and communities of practice around a common environment Each Unit, Sector and even large projects and Delegations invented their own way of being more efficient using online tools , Wikis, Blogs, CIRCABC, dedicated sites, dedicated knowledge sharing platforms (ROSA) …  Knowledge is scatered in multiple locations, the community of practice is fragmented and users need to learn a great variety of tools C4D : Consolidate knowledge sharing around capacity4dev.eu using groups (web rationalisation strategy)

10 Results in % growth with 2500 new members joining the community 65 new knowledge pieces (Voices and Views) on a great variety of themes backed with video and references. Knowledge sharing in groups: 3800 new documents blog posts, 300 new workshops shared Key new functionalities added: project management tool in groups, Peer support functionality Security and governance reinforced, migrated to EC data-centre
