The Share4Dev Knowledge Base is a multi-stakeholder, open-access platform for systematic information and knowledge sharing for sustainable development partners and initiatives. The platform can be used for localizing, sharing and managing knowledge on expertise, projects, organisations and results such as documents and good practices. All is uniquely searchable by theme, location and organisation. Key features of Share4Dev are its decentralised management system and dedicated views for networks and organisations, allowing updating, managing and displaying own information online.
Examples of Views are:
Thematic Views of InfoBridge:
Network Views of partners:
Why use it?
The platform can be readily made available at limited costs thereby allowing partners to quickly start sharing knowledge rather than engaging in an often time-consuming and costly design process. The platform already hosts substantial information and knowledge products of e.g. Natural Resource Management Programme (DFID), FAOs Farmer Field School programs as well as Climate change and ICT4D programs in Asia and Africa. Together the 10,000 information and knowledge items form an important knowledge base for sustainable development and can be used by all partners by adding them to their own information.
How engage as partner?
Interested organisations/networks may have their own View of their information/knowledge at Share4Dev. A View for a national programme or network is available at an annual subscription of 4,000 US $/year, with own logo, network management and online support. Subscription for more extensive users (e.g. a network with sub-views), dedicated training and backstopping can be provided on request.
