Knowledge Management & Capacity Building: Lessons from Southeast Asia on the design and delivery of research-for-development initiatives
Dr. Lisa Robins, Visiting Fellow of Hatfield College (Department of Geography) and Visiting Fellow at Fenner School of Environment and Society at the Australian National University, will be giving a presentation of her work as a researcher and consultant.
Dr. Robins will outline ten talking points or lessons on incorporating knowledge management and capacity building in the design and delivery of research-for-development (R4D) initiatives.
By knowledge management (“ways of improving learning and adoption pathways within a R4D project or program in order to enhance its impact”), and by capacity building (“strategies that will enable a R4D project or program across its social, institutional and economic dimensions).
In eliciting the ten talking points, Dr. Robins will draw from four R4D-related initiatives in Southeast Asia in the arena of natural resource management with which she has had a professional association, namely:
- Rice-based System Research Program: Food Security in Lao PDR, Cambodia and Bangladesh
- Indonesia-Australia Forest Carbon Partnership, of which the Kalimantan Forests and Climate Partnership was the main activity
- Mekong Program on Water, Environment and Resilience
- CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry
