Knowledge management for development
Knowledge management for development is widely recognized as international development
- Sharing expertise between organizations in related areas
- Sharing knowledge between the different agents in development - external actors (consultants, NGOs, activists), program participants and other stakeholders.
A radical open development approach involves:
- Opening up information silos
- Knowledge sharing, open data and transparency as fundamental to development.
This can be seen in the context of Amartya Sen's Development as Freedom, as development constituted by the free access to the knowledge needed for to empower and enable the "targets" of development to become informed, make decisions and take action for themselves.
