What We Are Learning


What We Are Learning

The KCP aims to enhance knowledge sharing and learning in all its activities. In an effort to make findings and lessons of KCP projects accessible to target audiences in a user-friendly way, we maintain mainly three channels of communication as listed and linked below.

The main purpose of these tools is to enable partners to capitalize on lessons learned by gaining insight and understanding from KCP experience, and by applying this knowledge to generate new knowledge.

This effort will help the KCP partners create and transform knowledge into action, innovation, and change.
