  • 1. Pamposh Kumar |Initiatives in Learning & Exchange of Water related Practices, Solutions & Values
  • 2. Learning & Exchange: Moving Targets Experience sharing and learning - often can have collateral costs! There could be learning at the cost of sharing Also the sharing may cloud the essence of learning
  • 3. Learning Exchange: Many Gurus thought it could be KM! (Knowledge Management) Yes, it can be……… • content management system in knowledge sharing • webtools/sites development, hosting & upgradation to improve information management • toolkits, media use & sharing, specialized assistance on tools such as GIS • training & technical support for capacity building, multi- project or single-project group studies or exchanges, cross portfolio events- platforms
  • 4. And there are more modes & the same object! • Convening & support to local, regional & transboundary dialogue processes • Outreach and communications support & services - to increase awareness, scalability, replication, impact and sustainability • Co-creation of knowledge-sharing materials -Field Manuals, Public Participation Guides, Communication Guidebooks, Experience Notes, Case Studies, Multimedia, Newsletters and E-Bulletins • Accompanied learning - IWRM and related cost of ecosystem services, transboundary environmental flows & information management, economic valuation, governance and management including public participation, etc.
  • 5. The whole has more capacity than the sum of its parts !
  • 6. The whole has more capacity than the sum of its parts ! • Access to project-related information, contacts, case studies, diagnostics, strategic programmes, news and events across focal areas & sectors • Replication for enhancing efficiency & effectiveness of interventions • Synergy of tangible results with other initiatives • Output utilization from conferences, global portfolio sharing, guidance materials & products/services • Policies-procedures, emerging priorities, project performance
  • 7. Eco & WaSH Futures support & catalysis • Mentoring for community initiatives & innovation • Addressing issues faced by one project & resolved by another • World Water Day-Networking for WaSH (for States) • Science for Sanitation (for States) • UN Water Decade • Consultative processes, knowledge sharing & networking
  • 8. Eco & WaSH Futures support & catalysis • Capacity Building Workshops • Local & regional dialogue facilitation • Water Educator’s training • Eco-regional approach/ Transboundary Waters Management (TWM) • Support for innovative models of outreach, knowledge sharing, learning & solution exchange
  • 9. Communities of Practice & Learning (CoPL) Role of knowledge sharing and exchange hubs • Portfolio workspaces & networking CoPLs in water stressed regions • Sharing on scientific and technical innovation (constructed wetlands and nutrient management, etc.) • Web based knowledge-authoring & sharing tools (wikis, blogs, etc.) • Syndication (news, web, video, audio ) • Strategic support- short courses, guidance on PPP & CSR, jobs, consultancy, training opportunities
  • 10. Beyond Learning Exchange ! • Are the concerned communities supportive? • How much replicable are the best practices exchanged ? • Can we simulate more of the best practices? • Can we anticipate more and unexpected scenarios?
  • 11. Learning Inclusion (LI) • Is the participation truly inclusive? • Can we identify the barriers to learning exchange and participation? • Can we develop approaches to self-review & analyse organizational culture, policies and practices?  • Can we develop inter-cultural channels of learning inclusion? • Do we have indices of inclusion?
  • 12. LI : deciding your own priorities for change • creating inclusive cultures • producing inclusive policies • evolving inclusive practices
  • 13. Towards Indices for LI Possible Indicators • Building supportive community • Establishing inclusive values • Producing inclusive policies • Organising support for diversity • Evolving inclusive practices • Mobilising & sharing resources • Growing nodal & distributed LI capacities
  • 14. How do we handle minefields of renewal & challenge the exclusion • Difference • Dissonace • Divergences • Diversities • Dissention • Rebellion Question hard the path of least resistance and of most convenience!
  • 15. Evidence base for LI Capacity • Creating LI specialisation & cross-specialisation capacity in Water Literacy • Mobilising & harnessing inter-cultural and multi- cultural competencies • Track of Learning Exchange & Solution Exchange • Delivering LI services • Developing it as integral part of existing development policies & future plans
  • 16. Match Possibilities Specialization A Specialization B Match 1 Ecosystems services Water Purification Match 2 Water Audit Watershed Protection Match 3 Livelihood Waters Water quality monitoring Match 4 Science Communicatio n Behaviour Change Communication/ Development Communication Match 5 Cultural competence Inter-cultural competence Cross-specialization capacity building
  • 17. Eco & WaSH Literacy: A model initiative in LI Capacity Building • Voluntary Sector - cross-capacity building, LE & LI specialisation • Public engagement with open- roots and open- leaves access • Holding Learning Exchanges & Solution Exchanges • Develop indices for LI capacity assessment framework • Tracking the performance
  • 18. Thank you. Cogito ergo sum. I understand, so I exist.
