Transcript of Putting Research into Use!

Capacity Stregthening and Knowledge Management Initiative Why a "Capacity" intiative? 1. At Global level

2. At CGIAR level

3. At CIAT level Improving the impact of development research through better research communications and uptake. Background paper for the AusAID, DFID and UKCDS funded workshop: London, November 29th and 30th 2010. At CGIAR - Recommendations of the Strategic and Research Framework SRF: Position CIAT as a potential focal point Capacity development within the CRPs as a support function to the different types of research partnerships.
Include more learning-by-doing, testing of new methodologies and participatory approaches. This implies more innovative approaches often tied to more effective knowledge management.
A dedicated unit to promote Capacity Strengthening, Learning and Knowledge Sharing at the Consortium level, a cross-cutting area where the CGIAR will build institutional capacities, or focal points, capable of providing strategic coherence, greater research efficiency and scientific quality to the overall research effort within the CGIAR. At the Center level What we do /
Services provided Stakeholder engagement strategies Research planning
Participatory M&E and documentation
Meeting design and facilitation
Support in collaborative tools
Train in KM tools and methods
Do research on KM
Participate, apply for special projects on KM and CS
Develop CS materials and events
