Learning from a remarkable Community of Practice – Final Report

Information and knowledge are basic prerequisites for the evolution of developing countries in the East and South. Information and knowledge are also important for efficient and effective development coorperation aiming at poverty alleviation. In the SDC strategy 2010 information and knowledge are mentioned as basic elements. Guiding lines are the assessment of experiences together with partner organisations, and the implementation of gained insights in common learning processes.

It has been discussed in business administration for some time now how efficiency and innovation can be increased, and risk reduced, by a better handling of information and knowledge. Meanwhile, many large companies have started initiatives in this respect. Also in development cooperation, a number of organisations have started to explore the potentials of improved knowledge sharing.
