25 septembre 2017

In this publication, we are proud to present the Agenda Knowledge for Development which has been developed in a collaborative process with colleagues from all over the world. The first edition of the Agenda Knowledge for Development was presented to the Knowledge for Development Summit, held in Vienna, Austria, on 14 October 2016. After review and further contributions, a third, revised edition has been created and will be presented in Geneva, Switzerland, on 3-4 April 2017 at the Knowledge for Development : Global Partnership Conference 2017. This conference will be bringing together key members of the knowledge for development community. As part of the Agenda Knowledge for Development, many leading individuals have contributed 73 statements in which they have put forward their personal views and perspectives on knowledge societies, representing diversity and richness of ideas, ambitions, experiences and commitments. Although most of the statements have been contributed by leading experts, we also have a number of contributions from individuals at the beginning of their professional working lives. Together, we share a vision of how knowledge and knowledge societies can contribute to an inclusive approach to human development. The Agenda Knowledge for Development and the statements are included in this publication.
