Knowledge Fairs Mechanism for horizontal transfer and knowledge exchange
MetadataShow full item record
This series “Methodological Guides on Knowledge Management” seeks to contribute to the strengthening of teams´ capacities in a number knowledge management methods. This guide collects the main lessons that UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean together with its partners have learned by planning, organizing and monitoring knowledge fairs. This guide targets organizations or project teams interested in promoting experiences as well as transferring knowledge and giving feedback to peers. This guide is aimed at UNDP Country Offices and UNS counterparts, national partners, project coordinators and officers, and all those that wish to implement a knowledge fair as a catalyst mechanism for knowledge exchange and transfer in support of development processes. Knowledge fairs are knowledge sharing mechanisms whose structure and format can be adapted according to any subject and any set of goals. For that reason, this guide is not a prescriptive manual but a recollection of recommendations and suggestions based on accumulated experience by UNDP and its partners through more than 15 knowledge fairs carried out since 2002. Its emphasis lays on identifying critical points to be considered before implementing an initiative of that sort and to propose tips based on past successes and mistakes.
