A key challenge faced by food security programs and projects is understanding how to develop an effective knowledge management strategy that meets their needs and ensures that any activities and initiatives are firmly grounded in the real needs and challenges of their specific project.

An effective KM strategy articulates a project’s vision on how to improve developmental efficiency and effectiveness through knowledge management. It should be suitably aligned with the project’s goals and objectives, must identify the key KM needs and challenges within the project, and provide the necessary framework and tools required for addressing these. Few resources exist for small organizations or projects looking for direction in developing a knowledge management strategy that meets their unique needs.  

The 3-day ‘Developing a Knowledge Management Strategy Workshop’, aimed at knowledge management or technical staff, was designed to fill this gap. Attendees engaged in a participatory process of developing a knowledge management strategy from beginning to end.
