Knowledge for Africa’s Development: Ten Priorities

The World Bank  launched a report on knowledge for development for Africa in Johannesburg South Africa, on 26th March 2008. Although the report partly represents the World Banks development ideology and percepton of KM as an ICT infrastracture driven concept, it nevertheless represents a welcome growing interest on KM for Africas’ development:

Knowledge for Africa’s Development: Ten Priorities seeks to take further the conversation that was started at the May 2006 Knowledge for Africa’s Development Conference. The aim is that the publication should enable some of the key aspects of the conversation to be made accessible to a wider audience than those present at the conference. It is hoped that the publication will also encourage effective and relevant action in addressing the challenges of building knowledge-based economies in Africa.

    This is very interesting. Thank you for posting. I think I might also share with KM4Dev. I’ll comment in more detail when I’ve read the report.

    Best wishes


  2. Hi Sarah,
    I am in Cape Town for this week – we are in a Knowledge Management Workshop involving students from University of Western Cape, Stellenbosch, and University of Namibia. I found this launch last nite and thought other members of the web-blog would find it of interest.
    Keep well
