Three entry points to enhance knowledge sharing in agricultural research
You must have Flash installed to view this content.
Simone Staiger-Rivas of the CGIAR argues that introducing knowledge sharing into a research organization requires attention to three entry points: The first is 'strategic' - making decision points more horizontal and participatory. The second is to work on concrete tools and approaches that staff can work with. The third concerns capacity building and staff empowerment. There is certainly no single 'magic bullet'. For knowledge sharing to really happen, an organization needs to "change profoundly." Interview by Peter Ballantyne, May 2009

Koda Traoré du CTA explique les leçons tirées du projet TelecentresAfrica, mis en place par le CTA. Le problème de pérennité des télécentres ruraux est le résultat d'un manque de contenus pertinents et de diversification des services, et de l'insuffisance de « l'appropriation sociale » des services des télécentres par les communautés locales. Il souligne également le besoin d'élaborer des stratégies d'élargissement et des plans de développement commercial.
