What I learned about knowledge management and development in Portugal

As i get deeper into the world of knowledge management i have realised there is a global network on just that - knowledge management for development. KM for Development (KM4Dev) is a community of international development practitioners who are interested in knowledge management and knowledge sharing issues and approaches.

In June I participated in their (our : ) annual KM4DEV conference. This year it was held in beautiful Almada, Portugal (next year in South Africa). This was my first KM4Dev and I didn’t quite know what to expect, by the end of it I found my self inspired, energized and full of new ideas to apply and share what I learned in an AIDSPortal context. Over 80 KM4Dev practitioners from around the world attended, many of them have just recently joined the network. There were both people from large NGOs and agencies, research organisations, as well as number of indepenent consultants. See full list at

Meeting objectives were to link together individual networks, overcoming shared challenges and to strengthen the current network through face2face meetings and discuss future directions and development of the KM4Dev for development.

The main event was entirely open space, ie. Participants determined the agenda, the timing and content of each workshop. My first open space. Topics were varied and diverse. They included:

  • How to create a sense of community online
  • Social networking
  • Using mobile phone technology in KM
  • Cultural and language barriers of KM
  • KM in low connectivity countries

All notes from open space session are available on the KM4Dev wiki. Click here to access.

To explore the various odds and sods that I took on board please go to the following sites:
