To cover the running costs of our community ICT infrastructure - e.g. the web domain, wiki, KS toolkit and journal - KM4dev needs your support. If you would like to support KM4Dev financially, consider making a donation via Credit Card or via PayPal.  Even the smallest amount will help!

Currently our community uses the following platforms, each with their own main purpose:

  • KM4Dev email list  - This is our primary conversation platform. 

  • - As more flexible multipurpose social platforms emerged, KM4Dev decided to start offering a Ning platform at that allows (groups of) KM4Dev members to self-organize their involvement in KM4Dev including: creating an own page; creating specific subgroups; announcing events; sharing audio-visual material; keeping a blog; etc. Guidelines and access to support can be found here. Note that participation requires your specific registration to our Ning platform
  • KM4Dev Wiki - Since it’s early days, the KM4Dev community decided to build a collaborative repository on various reference materials; documentation of a wide range of activities and; methods and tools. Every KM4Dev member may apply for a Wiki specific registration that allows contributing to its content. Guidelines and access to further support can be found here

  • Knowledge Management for Development Journal - The KM4Dev community also has its own open access, community-run journal which is now in 15th year of publication

  • KM4Dev elsewhere in cyberspace  -You may also find us and engage on Twitter; on Facebook; on LinkedIn; on Flickr; on Google+; on YouTube; on Google Drive. Across social media we tend to use the hashtag #KM4Dev, many of us also use #KM; #KMers; #knowledgemanagement; #KM4Dev20years.
