  1. Water, Land and Ecosystems Challenges, Opportunities and KM Infrastructure Photo: Prue Loney/IWMI

  2. Great Promise! Our vision A world in which agriculture thrives within vibrant ecosystems… • We do this through • Sustainable intensification – agriculture for healthy ecosystems • Benefit sharing mechanisms • Political and institutional change Photo: David Brazier/IWMI

  3. Five headed Hydra Resource Reuse and Recovery Rainfed River basins Irrigation Information Poverty, Institutions and gender Ecosystem Services

  4. Working in 10 river basins covering more than a billion people

  5. A range of partnerships

  6. Marketing, Communication and KM • WLE is predicated on assumption that major changes are needed in Knowledge, Attitudes and Skills to address how ecosystems are managed to reduce poverty • Blurred boundaries • Commsand KM has an emerging focus on • Internal communication • Partnership engagement • Program coherence • Linking to global processes • Utilization and presentation of information from centers

  7. Moving to new types of communication processes

  8. Complementary but different approaches

  9. Areas of KM

  10. Approaches • Repackaging research • Co-creation of knowledge • Use of KM tools to support outcomes (policy, scaling out,etc.) Facilitating internal sharing • Wikis, Blog, website • Documenting workshops • Social reporting Achieving impact • Harvesting knowledge data • Aggregating stories, news • Managing information Engaging researchers • Facilitating messaging • Blogs, website • Capacity building • Opportunity funds • Leveraging partners capacities • Regional/basin comms KM • Engaging regional and local partners Decentralized approach Producing IPGs, foresight and knowledge

  11. Key questions/challenges • How can we develop internal communication systems which are efficient and distributed do not overlap with centers and that support researchers ? • How to harness the potential of 14 research centers and develop systems to aggregate and harvest information rather than duplicating efforts? • How do we begin to define roles and responsibilities in different areas of the program and at different scales. • How to support researchers to achieve development outcomes identified? How to support ‘innovation in research’

  12. Some synthetic points for discussion • Moving highly complicated, partnership, multi-dimensional programs • Same ingredients but a fundamentally different way to do communication, knowledge management • How do we support researchers to move from research outputs to development outcomes • How do we move from the day-to-day/bread butter and KM to the strategic communication • Engaging in development processes (either in values chains or “basins”)
