OUR IMPACT

Goals

The overall goal for this project will be to develop effective and long-term knowledge management-related capacities in target countries. This will be undertaken through effective knowledge generation and sharing approaches that ensure improved knowledge management and results measurement for rural poverty reduction.

Objectives

The objectives of this work include: (i) assessing capacity and enhancing knowledge management skills of key rural institutions and other stakeholders in Moldova, Morocco, Sudan (with the possibility of adding two more countries); and (ii) fostering and promoting knowledge exchange in-country, cross-country and across trans-regional partners to foster knowledge uptake, transfer and management.

Impact Pathway

Knowledge Management Strategic Objective (KMSO) 1 is based on Objective 1 "Asses the capacity and enhance KM skills" of the project, and related activities under the Output "Knowledge Management capacity assessment for an enhanced formulation of learning needs". It also contributes to Objective 2 "Foster and promotes knowledge exchange in-country, cross-country, and trans-regionally". While the KMSO1 will be sustained by different activities in all components, it finds its main support from activities in the Outputs "Capacity development and knowledge systematization" and "Enhanced regional knowledge exchange". In addition, this objective will be contributed by specific activities presented in the Knowledge Management work packages section. Overall, KMSO1 will contribute to the Project Outcomes "Effective learning systems established and embedded in organizational processes with strengthened human and institutional capacities to manage the systematization of good practices" and "Improved knowledge exchanges among stakeholders based on increased adoption of good practices and knowledge transfer for increased SSTC, replication and scaling up", and will be measured by related indicators. Knowledge Management Strategic Objective (KMSO) 2 is mainly focused on activities under the Outputs "Capacity development and knowledge systematization" and "Enhanced regional knowledge exchange", while contributing to the Project Outcome "Effective learning systems established and embedded in organizational processes with strengthened human and institutional capacities to manage the systematization of good practices". In addition, this objective will be contributed by specific activities presented in the Knowledge Management work packages section. Knowledge Management Strategic Objective (KMSO) 3 is grounded on the Output 1 "Knowledge Management capacity assessment for enhanced formulation of learning needs" and is supported by activities in the Output "Enhanced regional knowledge exchange". It links to the Project Objective 2 "Foster and promote knowledge exchange across in-country, cross-country and trans-regionally" and contributes to the Outcome "Improved knowledge exchanges among stakeholders based on increased adoption of good practices and knowledge transfer for increased SSTC, replication and scaling up". This objective will be contributed by specific activities presented in the Knowledge Management work packages section.
