Knowledge Sharing at IICA

At IICA - the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture, access to information and knowledge, continuous learning and the efficient use of information technologies are ingredients in its strategic plan.

The 'knowledge sharing' page on the IICA web site gives a picture of the different objectives and electronic tools used at IICA as part of its strategy to create a common body of knowledge and information for the organization. Electronic tools to facilitate knowledge transfer and sharing include: the IICA web site; Infoagro.net (containing online documents, timely news, thematic bulletins); the IICA intranet; Videoconference Centres in different countries; several IICA libraries; discussion forums and lists; SIDALC (Agricultural Information and Documentation System of the Americas); electronic bulletins; and virtual communities.
