What is it? Who are we?

The Addis Ababa/Ethiopia KM4Dev group started off in January 2012, hosted at the International Livestock Research Institute and facilitated by Ewen Le Borgne. It brought together a group of NGO, research institute, university and independent people to establish together what they would like to do with a local KM4Dev network in Ethiopia and how they would like to interact. In that first meeting, the group decided to organise quarterly gatherings (and occasionally any other informal get-together) to discuss issues, present ideas and cases, run peer assist sessions and just meet each other.

The group comprises 54 members on the Ning group [1], 87 members on the Facebook group [2] as of May 2014, and at least 63 different people have taken part to one of the face-to-face gatherings as of May 2014. These members span governmental agencies, NGOs, international research institutes, universities, donor agencies and private companies or consultants.

What happened so far?
