Knowledge Management POLICY OF IFAD “IFAD recognizes that knowledge management is the collection of systems, processes and procedures designed to acquire and share the intellectual and knowledge based assets of the organization and its stakeholders. This means sharing lessons learned from our own experiences, by capturing and using the insights and knowledge of others and by constantly reinventing ourselves in the light of evolving circumstances. IFAD recognizes the need for credible, authoritative and convincing evidence to underpin our programme and policy initiatives; the existence of extensive knowledge on rural poverty; and the need to develop our capacity and culture to absorb and contribute to knowledge” (IFAD 2007)
