Hi all,

I thought it might be useful to have separate links for each set of suggestions, so that's what I'm (Riff) doing here....

I quite like most of Lucie's suggested text [1], with a couple of modifications:

Welcome to the KM4Dev wiki!

This wiki is both a working area for the Knowledge Management for Development (KM4Dev) community and a way for us to make our joint work accessible to a wider audience. KM4Dev is a community of international development practitioners interested in knowledge management and knowledge sharing issues and approaches. For more information on the community, click here [2], or download this one-page flyer [3].

The wiki is only one entry point to the resources and work of KM4Dev. To find additional resources such as articles, papers, books and web links, click here [4].

The KM4D Journal is also a great source of information on KM for development [5].

Finally, the KM4Dev discussion list is where many of the ongoing dialogues among KM4Dev members take place and it is, in a very real sense, where the community 'lives'. To subscribe to the KM4Dev list, click here (link to list)

About this wiki

This wiki is currently used in several ways:

  1. As a collaborative space during workshops or to work on different projects (link to to Main page section called Other Pages)
  2. As a space to present shared perceptions (often arising from conversations on the KM4Dev mailing list) of the 'state-of-the-art' in conceptualising knowledge management and knowledge sharing, particularly in an international development context
  3. As a environment where you can learn to use a wiki (link to Main page intro and How to work with a wiki)
