Guidelines for Knowledge Partnerships

The Asian Development Bank has recently released “Guidelines for Knowledge Partnerships”, a report prepared by Heather Creech of IISD and myself.  This is a major step forward in our thinking on how to set up and manage partnerships that are primarily for the purposes of the generation and exchange of knowledge.   We built the guidelines around the OECD DAC criteria for evaluation (Relevance, Effectiveness, Efficiency, Impact and Sustainability), together with identifying building blocks and success factors.

We hope those of you currently working with partners, or building more formal networks and consortia of organizations will find these guidelines helpful.

You can download the guidelines on IISD’s website http://www.iisd.org/networks/manage/default.asp or from ADB: http://adb.org/documents/guidelines/knowledge-partnerships/default.asp
