Strengthening Capacity for Global Knowledge-Sharing in International Waters (IW:LEARN)
|Project Category:||Portfolio Learning/Policy|
The International Waters Distance Learning Project (IW:LEARN) is an innovative inter-institutional partnership to build a Web-based "knowledge community" among transboundary waters projects. The purpose is to expand knowledge-sharing so that people who live in and manage transboundary water systems can better learn from and teach each other. IW:LEARN will draw upon the experiences and intellectual resources of GEF and its three Implementing Agencies (UNDP, World Bank, and UNEP), co-financing partners, and 40+ regional waters projects.
During Phase 1 (2000-2002), IW:LEARN will:
With external co-financing and institutional partnerships, IW:LEARN will intensify Implementation Team training and on-the-ground activities, especially in Africa. With continued global extension of the Internet, Phase 2 (2003-2008) will emphasize regionalisation, scaling up successful virtual community-building methods, and financial models that vastly expand access to learning.
