Bula colleagues,

To briefly introduce myself, I am working with the UNDP Pacific Centre as a Knowledge Management Officer. Part of my responsibilities include facilitating the establishment of communities of practice at a regional level.

I would greatly appreciate any research, experiences and details into the following:

  1. Awareness of any existing Communities of Practice based in the Pacific? Particularly in the areas of Poverty Reduction & MDGs, Democratic Governance, Crisis Prevention and Recovery and/or Financial Inclusion
  2. Research relating to cultural barriers in establishing Communities of Practice in the Pacific/Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and/or overcoming resistance to uptake of web tools

I look forward to hearing from you.
