About us

K4DP aims to include stakeholder groups from all over the world to create, drive and implement the Agenda Knowledge for Development for better knowledge sharing and collaboration, increased competence in knowledge management, and better conditions for individual knowledge work.

National knowledge partnerships have been established to localize the agenda and set local, national and regional initiatives. Communication platforms are established to bring together the K4D community to learn, share, and perform better together.

Agenda for Knowledge Development

The Agenda is aimed at providing a universal knowledge framework offering guiding principles, nurturing the dialogue on knowledge, strengthening global knowledge ecosystems and, ultimately, contributing to
better success in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of  the United Nations.

Based on the statements of 130 experts and representatives of multi-stakeholder communities, this Agenda has been presented in its current version in April 2017  at the UN Office in Geneva.
