Welcome to the InK4Dev website
Ink4Dev stands for "Information and Knowledge for Development". Information and knowledge are crucial to both social and economic development. In many developing countries, the strategic importance of information and knowledge is not fully appreciated. This is evidenced by the very little information sharing and dissemination within organisations at the planning level which makes it difficult for institutions to monitor and evaluate and learn lessons for the future. In the area of knowledge and knowledge management, initiatives are for the most part fragmented, and the potential benefits largely unrecognised. Hand-in-hand with this is also a lack of recognition within the ACP countries regarding their own diverse knowledge and home-grown approaches to knowledge management.
The Ink4Dev website is an ACP-EU Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) initiative. The website has been specially created to facilitate dialogue and the sharing of information and experiences in the area of information and knowledge. Two programmes: the Smart Toolkit and the ICM Strategy are currently featured here.
