Several methodologies are used to share knowledge. Among these are:
- Exchange visit
- After action review
- World café
- Peer assist
These methodologies are available on the Knowledge Sharing Toolkit website www.kstoolkit.org and were used during the Knowledge Fair, familiarizing the 250 participants with the methods.
The Knowledge Fair that was held in June 2010 in Niamey, Niger was an important activity to make the Programme known through its components, its participatory methodologies and the activities with its partners, and also to initiate dynamic exchanges and networking around themes that are common to the partners. The 250 participants appreciated the level of the exchanges and the participatory methodology used for knowledge sharing, such as the World Café, "talk shows", and mapping exercises.
During the Fair, a collaborative platform called "Foire aux savoirs" (Knowledge Share Fair) was made available to participants to familiarize themselves with new information communication technology, as well as social media. Many audio and video reports were made during the Fair and each session has been documented in photos.
The "Foire aux savoirs" in Niamey was one of the knowledge Share Fairs organized by the Rome-based UN agencies. Learn more at www.sharefair.net/share-fair-niamey/a-propos-de-la-foire/en/.
