Collaborate, Create, Communicate

CGIAR communications and stakeholder engagement – thoughts from Simone Staiger

Many of the people who are leading communications and knowledge management in the CGIAR (33 participants from 12 CGIAR Centers) have gathered this week (May 16-20, 2011) in Nairobi at ILRI Headquarters, to share ideas and lay out the elements of a road map for the CGIAR Consortium and its Centers in terms of communications strategies, collaboration, the use of social media tools and other relevant issues.

This meeting has been an interesting opportunity to share, learn, discuss current issues, and explore ways to collectively undertake actions to overcome the issues and work more closely together to support inter-Center and  CGIAR Research Program (CRP) communication and collaboration…

I invite you to read the following post from Simone Staiger; which provides a wonderful insider’s view and summary of the topics they have been discussing this week: ‘Initial thoughts about CG communications and stakeholder engagement‘.

and what’s your take?
