In 2015, PEM completed a major review of the Global Water Partnership (GWP) Knowledge Management function on behalf of Danida, the EC and other financing government partners. Our review indicated the need to strengthen links between Knowledge and Learning based on capturing, disseminating, and adding value ‘from the field up.’ A key result of the review was that GWP developed a new Knowledge Management Approach which is now embedded in their current global work programme for 2017-2019.
