IAALD Africa conference summary report

Hilda Munyua and colleagues recently compiled a summary report (pdf format) of the First IAALD Africa conference held in Nairobi in May 2006.

The report pulls together the main discussion points and issues from each of the sessions as well as from the various pre-conference workshops. It concludes by stating that the "conference objectives were fully achieved and delegates shared and exchanged experiences, ideas and best practices. A number of training sessions were held during the pre-conference workshops on various aspects of information and knowledge management. A number of decisions were taken with a view to helping to improve access to agricultural information to all the different categories of users. Furthermore, networking took place and relationships were established and strengthened. Most significantly, the IAALD Africa Chapter was officially launched to spearhead activities that address the challenges raised and to work towards implementing the recommendations of the conference."
