What is it?

Km4dev-Rome started in February 2009 as an outcome of the Share Fair event organized by Bioversity, CGIAR, FAO, IFAD and WFP in January of the same year. The presence of numerous international organizations and UN agencies in Rome and our respective work in the knowledge sharing for development area brought us to the conclusion that we would all benefit from such a local group of practitioners.
