You must have Flash installed to view this content.
Simone Staiger-Rivas of the CGIAR advises research organizations thinking about knowledge sharing "not to start with a strategy." She suggests instead to start small with different projects and experiments. She concludes that we need to adopt the basic methods of research - to learn, to think about, to experiment, have trials, then scale up - "that's exactly what we should do in knowledge sharing."

Le problème de pérennité des télécentres ruraux est le résultat d'un manque de contenus pertinents et de diversification des services, et de l'insuffisance de « l'appropriation sociale » des services des télécentres par les communautés locales. Il souligne également le besoin d'élaborer des stratégies d'élargissement et des plans de développement commercial.
