International development organisations and their national and local partners are creating a wealth of knowledge that can help the poor build sustainable livelihoods. However, this knowledge, for one reason or another, is often retained by individuals and groups and is not widely shared within or among organisations.

A great deal has been written about approaches to promote KS and KM in general within the private sector – particularly in multinational corporations. In contrast, there is much less documentation on approaches that have been developed or adapted and applied in public and non-governmental organisations. This issue of KM4Dev presents papers on experiences with KS in international development organisations, with the goals of highlighting strategies and approaches used to foster KS in diverse settings and presenting their results.
