Knowledge for development innovation is about change. It is about the production, the distribution and the delivery of the knowledge for development with the right knowledge format, and the supported sociocultural knowledge infrastructures at the right place and at the right moment into local knowledge management resources and potentials.

Knowledge for development practitioners,  public, private, non-profit and community organizations as well as professional associations should focus attention on the centrality of the problem of the access  to sociocultural knowledge infrastructures and the knowledge delivery format issues to actively manage, distribute, and to support in places  development changes that sustainable development  programmes and projects entail.

Knowledge for development practitioner, development communities, private and public development organizations etc. have to work closely together to build new knowledge for development that provide development policymakers with a broader understanding of local and international poverty issues. New knowledge for development must adresse the capacity enhancement activities in the fields of knowledge for development, community development and resources mobilization for knowledge for development´s  approaches.

The challenge is to make sure that, international community development, local, regional and national associations and networks of community development practitioners, organisations that work in and support community development initiatives, researchers and  academics, sustainable development activists, development policymakers at local, regional and national levels,  and anyone with a genuine interest in supporting sustainable community development approaches, in understanding  the current state of knowledge for development´s  approaches and the challenges to  the future of  knowledge development´s approaches management.

The success depends on the connection of people and development organisations to each other,  making the knowledge for  development more pragmatic,  and  more available in the right  knowledge´s format  and the sociocultural infrastructures that support the knowledge  everywhere.

The knowledge for development must call for endorsing partners, joining the network of knowledge for development with opportunities  to develop new  knowledge for development concepts and horizons, to participate in knowledge for development  research visits,  confrerences,  face-to-face  knowledge for development  learning events, to share knowledge for development  works and experiences with a global audience, through  website, ebulletins, newsletters,  local and regional knowledge for development learning and exachange centers, and other knwoledge for development channels (platform for knowledge for development institution’s project and programm meetings, workshops and seminars on knowledge for  development´s challenges, negotiation and collaboration  for new knowledge for  development´ challenges and concepts)..

Only, we can deeply tackle, ending Poverty with the right comprehensive development approaches. Poverty is a complex and variable phenomenon.  The pragmatic comprehension of poverty´s causes (the lacks of the access to the  efficient sociocultural infarstructures (physical infrastructures) and the related knowledge management and transfer (soft infrastructures) for poor people, and  the comprehension of the  poverty´s transformations processes in time and space are  absolute for making the Sustainable Development Policies more operational and effective...

To achieve this one we need pragmatic knowledge for development approaches that encourage, enable, and mobilizes  the access of the poor people to the  efficient sociocultural infarstructures (physical infrastructures) and the related knowledge management and transfer (soft infrastructures) wherever they are living....

In order to achieve maximum results from knowledge for development activities, Knowledge Management professional, development agencies and development communities must support an increased focus of knowledge network on ensuring the effective and innovative flow of knowledge for development within knowledge for development networks, development communities, public  and private organizations and with knowledge for development organizations and partners. The primary objective of the knowledge for developement  is to support the development organizations’ mission in efficient  mangement of knowledge for development  to eliminate poverty and promote share prosperity.

The knowledge for development is rooted in the culture of searching for  suitable alternative solutions to sustainable development issues. The right knowledge for development requires a shift in knowledge management culture and a fundamental re-organization of the way knowledge for development is produced, packaged, tested, delivered  and supported.... 

To reach this goal the access for all to the right sociocultural Knowledge for Development infrastructures that support everywhere this Knowledge is central and absolute. This means Knowledge for Development  and the supported sociocultural infrastructures should be available  in different  Knowledge format  for all at the right place and at  the right time.

Whatever the social, economic, politic solutions (project, program, evaluation, development aid, innovations, finances, technology etc.) poverty will continue to defy solutions as long as poor people do not get access to the right economic, social, public and cultural infrastructures (physical infrastructures) and the related knowledge management and transfer (soft infrastructures) that affect and endorse their daily lives and activities wherever they are...”,

Knowledge for Development becomes a key driver for sustainable development systems, and the access to knowledge must be generally considered as a key condition for innovative activities in our modern development industry.

Development communities as well as private and public sectors need to focus on new knowledge for development policies context as starting point to explore territorial and regional knowledge for development potentials, resources and dimension for the change including knowledge business.

A global concept must be used including knowledge for development product innovation, knowledge process innovation, sociocultural knowledge infrastructures innovation, knowledge format innovation, public and organizational knowledge for development innovation.

This Change must take into account the current knowledge for development state, patterns and potentials of nations and regions with respect to the knowledge and innovation development and identify new sustainable development opportunities through sociocultural knowledge infrastructures and knowledge for development format innovation...

This could be only happened through excellent knowledge networking event promoting the benefits of Knowledge for Development involvement in different knowledge format and sociocultural knowledge infrastructure networks. This could be the chance to gain new knowledge for development and the opportunities to exchange and develop new ideas and solutions for knowledge for development that corresponds to each development sector..

The success of knowledge for development program depends on the adoption among knowledge for development communities and target beneficiaries of new behaviours, commitments, dedications, willing to share, to learn, and to collaborate together in finding  suitable solutions for sustainable development challenges.

Knowledge for development practitioners, development communities and knowledge for development networking groups must put their efforts together to imagine how to find creative knowledge for development ideas, and to transform these ideas into a valuable  and useful knowledge for development that promotes and drives sustainable development around the world....

Therefore we must address the entire knowledge changes requirements (knowledge format, knowledge infrastructures etc.) that are going to be required and how we will implement them.

With the right evaluation, planning, organizational learning, collaboration, participation, networking and adaptation over time and space, knowledge for development organizations can improve their abilities to cope with and even anticipate the development change necessary to implement the next  suitable  knowledge for development innovations. This may include:

Changing for Development Communities

Knowledge for development innovation requires that knowledge for development producers should  imagine for in places communities something they can use and exploit for themselves.  This means knowledge for development producers must work hand in hand with local and international development communities to learn and to know about local and regional knowledge environment requirement, and to imagine how the new knowledge for development products and services that will be produced and delivered can solve a real problem in the life of the poor people....
Changing for Knowledge for Development  Behaviour

Knowledge for development innovation requires that knowledge for development practitioners should produce  and delivery practical  knowledge for development solutions and innovative knowledge for development formats.  This means new knowledge for development strategies and skills must be adopted. Knowledge for development staff must learn to support different, less and technical knowledge for development delivery strategies in different knowledge  formats. To achieve this effective knowledge  for development networking and partnerships in the development industry must be encouraged .

Changing in Knowledge for  Development Delivery

Knowledge for development innovations requires that knowledge for development suppliers and support should work hand in hand with development communities in new ways. Effective networking,  cooperation and collaboration is required.

Knowledge for development  must make drastic changes to respond and to support just-in-time and in space sustainable development programs and projects.  Therefore  collaboration and networking is necessary to source different knowledge for development components and formats at the higher volumes platform and shorter lead times required for  the successfully delivery of each knowledge for development package (available and access for all member of the target communities without restriction) at the target station.

This means finding, networking and collaboration with some new knowledge for development suppliers who could handle the effective delivery of the required knowledge for development  package with the right format and the right sociocultural knowledge infrastructures that are suitable to handle effectively the package of this  knowledge in places.

Changing in Knowledge for Development Distribution

Knowledge for development innovations must encourage  that different knowledge researchers,  development communities, social network,  private and public sector must work together for the flexible distribution of new knowledge for development  through different communities development stations and development  channels. This  requires huge development resources, and therefore  common local, global resources and efforts.

That is why knowledge for development agencies must build knowledge for development networking program, develop  knowledge for development strategy,  manage the implementation and the delivery of new knowledge for development format and infrastructures  with other development staff and development communities...

Knowledge for development practitioners need to build new knowledge production platforms,   knowledge distribution systems and channels that supports different knowledge format.

Changing in Knowledge for Development Marketing

New knowledge for development products and services (new sociocultural knowledge infrastructures management, new knowledge for development formats, new virtual and physical knowledge for development centers) need  new marketing strategies to find new   knowledge for development financial resources including  knowledge for development networking, knowledge collaboration partners,  and to build robust knowledge for development relationships with different types of development communities.

Knowledge for development  must developing, testing, delivering and supporting  in different knowledge formats different  types of knowledge for development across public and private development communities to reach development communities  in places through different sociocultural knowledge for development infrastructures and channels. 

The  knowledge for development practitioners  must  connect with mass public and private development communities, and help them focusing their attention on how new knowledge for development approaches and combinations can enhance the change in the life of poor people wherever they are.

Changing in Knowledge for Development Operations 

In addition to changes in the production, distribution, the delivery and in the supporting of the knowledge for development, knowledge for development  must work and operate hand in hands with different types of development communities, re-training existing knowledge development communities, accounting for knowledge for development revenue in a different way, and going about production and distribution of knowledge for development management in a new innovative way….

This means have a place where knowledge for development could help and support development communities, decisions and experiences with their new knowledge for development products. This must lead to the creation of regional and local knowledge for development centers.  The production, delivery, operations and supporting of the knowledge for development  must be adapted to local development changes with the right knowledge format and the right sociocultural knowledge infrastructures.


The effective identification of the needed resources to accomplish innovative knowledge for development management results must involve multiple private and public development sectors. This means effective collaboration with development staff and other communities’ development is absolute.  Knowledge development practitioners must sharing innovative, best practices, trends, knowledge and lessons learned across different knowledge networking, platforms and different channels.

Finally, knowledge for development must build as well as  in remote areas, physical, virtual regional and local knowledge for development centers that operate with different knowledge format and sociocultural knowledge infrastructures without neglecting the local knowledge potentials and resources...
