Knowledge Access in Rural Inter-connected Areas Network (KariaNet) - Phase II

The Knowledge Access in Rural Inter-connected Areas Network (KariaNet) aims to enhance the effectiveness of development projects in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) that serve to enable the rural poor by sharing innovations, best practices and indigenous knowledge using information and communication technologies (ICTs) and knowledge management tools. The first phase of KariaNet was funded under project 102206.

This phase will endeavor to expand the existing network to include two thematic networks on food security and rural enterprise, respectively. A third thematic network - on knowledge management strategies - will play an advisory and support role to the larger network. Project activities will include a call for research proposals on the aforementioned topics, action-research projects, training and dissemination workshops, and a website.
