Knowledge management (KM) is a key strategy in enabling and enhancing the collaboration and learning between CSOs and institutions in governance.
To achieve successful participatory governance it is vital that civil society and other governance stakeholders understand why the demand for more effective, responsive and accountable governance is important to development, are aware of good and fit practices in effective governance engagement or know where to find out more information and have an increased awareness of citizen participation and its benefits.
This area focuses on building a culture of learning to strengthen participation in governance. Enhancing knowledge management contributes to sustainability by: (i) promoting knowledge sharing and learning; (ii) documenting and disseminating knowledge resources, lessons learned and success stories; and (iii) maximising communications and technology to enable meaningful learning and performance. Activities in this outcome area include engaging with media for development as partners in advocating for good governance. Stakeholders will also be engaged with governance issues where there is minimal knowledge and contribute to increasing awareness and understanding of, and demand for, efficient, responsive and accountable governance.
