Welcome to the the Ink4Dev Knowledge Management Group.
Welcome to the Ink4Dev Website.
KIT aims to contribute to sustainable economic development, health, poverty alleviation, sharing knowledge, cultural preservation and cultural exchange.
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.

The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is an ACP-EU institution working in the field of information for development. We operate under the ACP-EU Cotonou Agreement and our headquarters are in The Netherlands. When it was set up, in 1984, CTA was given the challenging task of improving the flow of information among stakeholders in agricultural and rural development in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries.
