Share Fair at the FAO

indigenous-knowledge-boothMike Powell and Sarah Cummings of IKM Emergent both participated in the Share Fair at the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) which took place on 20-22 January 2009.

ikm-roundtableThe Share Fair was an event with a difference. It was buzzing, informal, sometimes chaotic and always dynamic, with more than 900 visitors from a huge variety of different development organisations. IKM Emergent took place in the Share Fair in a number of different ways:

  • A booth on indigenous knowledge with members of an FAO network on indigenous knowledge
  • Mike Powell took part in a Panel on knowledge management strategies with Geoff Parcell, Manuel Flury and others, chaired by Peter Ballantyne
  • IKM organised a Rountable ‘What does this all mean?’ on the implications of the Share Fair for the development knowledge system
  • Facilitation of a session on indigenous knowledge.
