Throughout these five years, many lessons have been learned, challenges overcome, and knowledge products, tools, methods and instruments developed. The knowledge that was gained through these programmes is of great value to the current and future Strategic Partnerships as well as to Partos members in general.
For this reason, Partos is creating a ‘knowledge map’ consisting of knowledge products with the objective of creating new opportunities for learning for the new Strategic Partnerships. Through this we hope to enable new partnerships to learn from past experiences and to build upon the knowledge that has already been developed. Moreover, knowledge gaps and learning needs will be brought to light, which we will in turn shaper our focus.
After an initial scan of existing knowledge products and tools, organisations will be asked to share the most valuable or memorable knowledge products of the past five years. Which knowledge products are they proud of, and which do they think will be most valuable for other organisations? The specific objective of this first step is to gain an understanding of the knowledge that is already available and insight into the relevant internal and external stakeholders that are involved. We are also curious about the experiences and initiatives of (Southern) partner organisations and will include these in this process.
Based on this inventory, a knowledge map is created and organisations in the new partnerships are contacted to share their knowledge needs. Building on this, new learning activities will be developed in collaboration with organisations and offered to all Partos members.
The knowledge map is created in collaboration with Strhive. Strhive is an organisation specialised in continuous Learning for International Development Cooperation.
