Find the full call for articles and papers for the December 2009 issue of the Knowledge Management for Development Journal at km4dj_call_for_papers-december-20093
Volume 5, Issue 3, to be published in December 2009, will focus on the effective (and potential) contribution of approaches to learning, collaboration and knowledge management (KM) to the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector, and the integrated water resource management (IWRM) sector. The issue will introduce various academic and practitioner perspectives, thought pieces and case studies on the possibilities and concrete applications of learning, collaboration and knowledge management strategies, activities, processes and systems to address the critical issues of the water sector in a context-specific way.
The contributions are highly encouraged to explore the following questions:
- ·How can knowledge management, collaboration and learning contribute to addressing the challenges of the water sub-sector, to achieving sectoral goals, to innovating and to reducing fragmentation?
- What thinking / concepts guide the KM frameworks, approaches and tools in the water sub-sectors?
- Where is the current thinking on learning headed in the water sub-sector?
- Which frameworks, strategies, approaches and tools are being used in the water sub-sector?
- Which promising learning, collaboration and knowledge management-related developments could have a significant effect on the way water sector actors operate and co-operate?
- How does the call for increased networking and knowledge management materialise on a personal, organisational and institutional context?
- Is there a need for a more systemic ‘sub-sector learning’ initiative in the countries and, if so, how could it shape up?
