MFF’s results are captured and disseminated strategically through a strong knowledge management and communications component. Knowledge management is the process of identifying, creating and sharing lessons and experiences. In the context of MFF, this means: designing a system that will organize, analyze and distribute the outcomes of MFF processes and practices; synthesizing information gathered through MFF project cycle management; collating scientific knowledge and traditional wisdom; and developing technical guidelines and best practices. Communications supports the sharing of this knowledge by making it accessible and delivering it in a form relevant to MFF’s audiences and stakeholders.
Together, these two disciplines constitute the MFF knowledge platform, a hub for recording and disseminating information that integrates human resources, dissemination channels, learning processes, monitoring and user feedback mechanisms. The platform enhances the flow of information both horizontally among different MFF stakeholders and vertically between the regional, national and project levels. This flow is essential to achieving MFF’s objectives, as well as ensuring results, lessons and best practices are shared widely.
