Lake Victoria Basin Commission (LVBC) will validate its new Knowledge Management Strategy (2017-2022) during a regional workshop in Entebbe, Republic of Uganda. The workshop, taking place at the Imperial Golf View Hotel from 28th-30th November 2017, aims at enhancing understanding of the importance of knowledge management to organizational effectiveness and efficiency. Specifically, this workshop will establish knowledge management as a key in realizing the LVBC Strategic Plan 2017-2022 and to create requisite ownership for effective implementation of the KM Strategy.

 

At least two delegates from 5 East African Partner States—Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda—and senior management staff from LVBC and the K4Health Project will participate in the regional workshop, which will result in a validated LVBC KM Strategy.

 

LVBC Executive Secretary, Dr. Ally Said Matano, and Regional Representative of The Johns Hopkins Center for Communications Programs, Ms. Cheryl Lettenmaier, will deliver statements underlining the importance of the KM Strategy to achieving sustainable development and poverty eradication in the Lake Victoria Basin. The workshop will be undertaken in line with article 71(1) (f) of the Treaty for the establishment of the East African Community (EAC) which endows the EAC Secretariat and its organs and institutions the responsibility of promoting and disseminating information and knowledge to stakeholders.

 

LVBC has partnered with the USAID-funded K4Health Project since 2016, to strengthen Knowledge Management (KM) Department and Population, Health and Environment (PHE) Programme. A KM Assessment conducted as a joint activity in April 2016 identified areas for improvement in LVBC’s approach to knowledge management.Subsequently, K4Health provided training in KM for LVBC Secretariat staff and representatives from each of its five partner states.

 

The KM Strategy resulted from the impactful LVBC-K4H partnership. Informed by the KM Needs and Gaps Assessment, the Strategy has three objectives: to strengthen the operational and technical capacity of LVBC to serve as a regional knowledge hub; to strengthen the culture of knowledge sharing with LVBC partners and stakeholders; and to improve access to knowledge by developing quality knowledge products.

 

LVBC prioritizes interventions within six programmatic areas: environmental and natural resources management; integrated water resource management and development; maritime transport safety and security on Lake Victoria; social development services in Lake Victoria Basin; investments and economic Productivity in Lake Victoria Basin and the Institutional and Coordination Capacity of LVBC.

 

K4Health is USAID’s flagship knowledge management project worldwide. Managed by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Communication Programmes, K4Health partners with institutions and organizations to strengthen KM capacity with the aim of improving the way health and family planning knowledge is accessed, shared, and used.
