Knowledge Management Training Workshop for SADC, COMESA and Partners
The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa Southern Africa Office (ECA-SA) has a mandate to strengthen regional integration in the Southern Africa subregion. In this regard, it is committed to strengthen information and knowledge networking with key stakeholders involved in subregional development activities, including governments, the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), private sector, civil society, United Nations (UN) agencies and development partner organizations. As part of this strengthened information and knowledge networking initiative, the ECA has developed a Knowledge Management (KM) strategy to better serve its stakeholders and to optimize the synergies between its work and that of various partners in knowledge generation and dissemination, policy advisory and outreach. The KM strategy will allow ECA to establish a system to rationalize the acquisition, storage and sharing of knowledge, which will optimize the impact of its work. ECA-SA aims to set up Communities of Practice (CoPs) on regional integration, macroeconomic analysis, infrastructure, agriculture, trade, social and human development, and gender and development.
