  6. 6. Knowledge sharing Processes, practices and a style that encourages the sharing of experience – internally and with partners. It’s about how we work every day. • Learning before, during and after • Innovative and productive meeting organization (F2F and online) • Capturing and synthesis of experience • Accountability for sharing and learning • A part of M&E
  7. 7. Why Menarid KM? Why Knowledge sharing? A missed opportunity…. Rural development and environmental initiatives invest hundreds of millions in programs, projects and interventions. • Why is there no simple access to the achievements across projects? – Project-driven nature of program investments – Knowledge sharing, synthesis, M&E are often and after-thought • DFID ‘10% rule’
  8. 8. Menarid KM initiative What will the project leave behind? • Menarid Gateway – Knowledge/information management platform • Learning and technology Transfer Process – Documented process and steps for ‘live review’ and synthesis of innovations • Menarid Monitoring & Evaluation – Criteria, resources, database & tool
  9. 9. Your ideas for next steps • How useful for all IFAD country programs and others? • Link Menarid platform with other resources • How will you continue to use the Menarid platforms and tools? In your organization or country • How to make Menraid innovations/evidence available to policy/decision makers
