Guidelines for Knowledge Partnerships

By Heather Creech, Michelle Laurie on May 17, 2011

The Guidelines for Knowledge Partnerships were commissioned by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to assist ADB staff in creating, managing, monitoring and evaluating partnerships with other organizations.

The partnerships are focused on or grounded in knowledge processes and actions, and will, based on the knowledge shared and new knowledge and understanding created through collaboration, serve to advance sustainable development in Asia and the Pacific region. The guidelines are short, descriptive and advisory in nature. They are intended as a tool to help ADB staff implement and strengthen the practice of creating and applying knowledge solutions for development through the effective design, deployment and assessment of partnership arrangements with other organizations in the region and with strategic international partners.While the guidelines are targeted toward partnerships with a primary focus on knowledge generation, sharing and mobilization, they will be valuable in guiding the development of all partnerships. The document may also help other organizations design and manage their knowledge partnerships.
