What Is Knowledge Management and How Can It Improve Your Food Security Program?
Learning from experience is essential to improve our work and the programs we support or implement. This session at the Food Security and Nutrition Network/TOPS Project Knowledge Sharing Conference in Washington, DC explored key concepts in knowledge management that have proven relevant for development sectors.
It addressed: 1) how we learn from experience; 2) techniques and processes that facilitate knowledge generation and sharing; and 3) tips for applying these ideas and techniques in your everyday work. Led by Alyssa Lowe of CARE and Lani Marquez of the USAID ASSIST Project, the session identified common KM practices that are useful to support program learning and that can be easily incorporated into food security and nutrition as well as other development work.
