Refresher: what’s KM?

knowledge management is concerned with three things:

  • What is known;
  • How that knowledge is used; and
  • How fast something new can be learned.

Simply put, it enables us to find and organise data and information so that it can be articulated and applied to make better decisions.

  • What will it take for AAP’s work to be sustainable?
  • What might be the role KM has to contribute to that sustainability?
  • UNDP & adaptation

internal challenges

Internal challenges

  • Identifying and leveraging mutually-held knowledge for its benefit
  • building its innovative capacity by “knowing what it is it knows” and applying this intellectual capacity in new products and services;
  • taking on the educational challenge of building higher order skills eg resilience; coaching; negotiation; networking etc.
leadership
Leadership

Our respective organisations need to acknowledge that it is an open-system, nestled within an environment that contains other systems.

It means leadership has to ask - how do we lead differently in a world of multiple stakeholders?

km leadership will involve
KM leadership will involve..
  • Commitment to building knowledge
  • Allowing self-managing teams greater flexibility and adaptability; less ‘command & control”
  • Leadership cascading throughout the system
  • Leader as “servant”; not ‘hero”.

it means
It means..

It means replacing old values with new ones:

      • Cooperation not competition
      • Understanding the whole picture not step-by-step linear planning and micro-management
      • Co-evolving with the environment not controlling it
  • It calls for authentic dialogue so that all stakeholder needs and concerns are understood and it involves understanding that value is created by building long-term sustainable relationships with stakeholders and consulting with NGOs, voluntary cooperatives etc...

but undp and we humans love predictability and balance
BUTUNDP (and we humans) LOVE predictability and balance.
  • To move towards sustainability, the organisation has to be in a state of non-equilibrium (i.e. keeping off balance/edge of chaos) so it can dynamically grow and adapt. It must receive new information and knowledge even if it disturbs the system.
  • The new environment we are facing globally will force the organisation to be off balance.
  • So just as the heat has been turned up on our planet, so the heat is on for the contemporary organisation.

km has a key role in driving sustainability
KM has a key role in DRIVING sustainability
  • If sustainability is all about stakeholder engagement; building bridging capital; broadening the knowledge base of what we do beyond its boundaries, then KM has a critical role to play.
  • When a system is off balance, it must constantly innovate and adapt. It is known as the space of creativity or edge of chaos. KM can push the system towards the edge of chaos and force it to be continually challenged, continually respond to external stimuli; continually refresh itself.

How?
  • Building rich connections and conversations
  • Communities of practice
  • Value networks – where knowledge is exchanged and economic success for all participants in the value network is achieved.
  • Coaching/mentoring
  • Learning how to adapt and be resilient in the face of rapid change

Overview of UNDP engagement on climate change

UNDP is the lead capacity development UN agency and have a long history of assisting countries to address climate change, climate variability & extremes; land degradation and biodiversity loss, and developing capacity in these areas.

  • UNDP’s CC adaptation portfolio includes 25 LDCs and 17 SIDS
    • UNDP has supported 31 LDCs to develop NAPAs, and 26 LDCS to develop National Communications
    • UNDP is currently supporting over half of all LDCs to access financing for NAPA follow-up priorities funded by the LDCF, etc
  • UNDP assists 23 LDCs to conserve & sustainably use biodiversity; an additional 12 LDCs will soon be supported
  • UNDP supported 32 LDC to undertake National Capacity Self-Assessments and work with several to address priorities
undp s approach to adaptation
UNDP’s Approach to Adaptation
  • UNDP assists over 75 non-Annex I countries to adapt to climate change.
  • Of these, 54 countries are already implementing programmes/projects to manage uncertainties of climate change.  This includes 25 LDCs and 17 SIDS. 
  • 1. Develop Technical Capacity
  • Identify climate change risks and opportunities
  • Prepare long-term risk management strategies
  • 2. Internalize Climate Change Risks
  • Integrate climate change risks into planning, budgeting, management
  • Incorporate climate change risks into decision making process for key economic sectors3. Policy and Institutional Support
  • Revise and formulate national and sectoral policies
  • Establish institutional support mechanism
  • 4. Demonstration Projects
  • Test approaches and technologies for climate change risk management
  • 5. Capacity Building
  • Codify and disseminate knowledge and best practices

UNDP Climate Change Adaptation Assistance: Distribution of Funding by Activity

undp support to least developed countries ldcs
UNDP Support to Least Developed Countries (LDCs)

UNDP has been instrumental to the development of National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPA) and Implementation of NAPA Priorities

  • NAPAs
    • UNDP has supported 31 LDCs to develop NAPAs
    • The final 2 UNDP-supported NAPAs for Nepal & Timor Leste were completed in 2010
  • Implementation of NAPA Follow-Up Activities
    • UNDP is the first development agency to support NAPA follow-up activities
    • UNDP is currently supporting over half of all LDCs to access financing for implementation of NAPA follow-up priorities funded by the LDCF

UNDP also supports LDCs via initiatives funded by the SCCF and AF

  • Some examples:
    • Coping with Drought & Climate Change (SCCF): Ethiopia, Mozambique
    • Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change (SCCF): Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Vanuatu
    • Enhancing resilience of communities to the adverse effects of climate change in agriculture and food security (AF): Solomon Islands
