    FAO-Belgium Knowledge Management and Gender Partnership Programme


    The Knowledge Management and Gender Programme has the following goals:

    1. Disseminate knowledge

    2. Promote knowledge sharing

    3. Identify, promote, publicize and disseminate good practices in support of food security and the empowerment of rural populations

    4. Synergize the largest possible number of stakeholders in the development sector (i.e. representatives of networks, governments, civil society, producers organizations, other international, bilateral and multilateral organizations).

    Is knowledge sharing power?

    Knowledge is power, but once it is shared it is no longer power, isn’t it?
