Knowledge and development – beyond KM

Mike Powell, Director of IKM Emergent, has written a Letter to the Editor of The Broker in response to an article NGOs learning from experience? Aid as a knowledge industry by journalist, Mariëtte Heres.

In the Letter, Mike argues:

I have much appreciated the attention given to issues of knowledge and how it can be applied to development in recent issues of The Broker. Your contributions on access to knowledge within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, development research policy and knowledge management within NGOs all reflect different aspects of these issues and their complexity and difficulty. I believe they also reflect an alertness in the Netherlands to their importance, which is not as widely appreciated elsewhere.
