Learning and knowledge management on CD

Overall, knowledge on how to effectively build up effective country systems and public institutions remains
limited. Both government and DP stakeholders are still on a learning curve when it comes to how to design,
support, implement, monitor and evaluate
effective CD interventions. It is therefore important to recognize the
need for learning and efficient knowledge management on CD, across institutional boundaries (Government


DPs, between institutions).


What is the practical experience with knowledge m
anagement on CD efforts in the decentralisation sector and
at LG level in Rwanda? What strengths and weaknesses can be identified in this regard, and what lessons
learned? What are related opportunities and threats? Which suggestions can be made on the way

forward?
