Subject: [CI] [Fwd: [km4dev-l] KM4D Journal - New issue online - capacity
building for networking]

Dear KM4Dev Community,
With great pleasure we announce that the September 2006 issue of the KMD
Journal on the subject of 'Capacity building for networking' is now online:

The catalyser for this issue on capacity building for networking was a
workshop on the 'Management of international networks for knowledge
sharing', organised by Skat and Helvetas on the 25-28 April 2006 in St.
Gallen (Switzerland). Two contributions ensuing from this workshop can also
be found in this special issue that comprises articles and case studies
ranging from analysis of what kind of capacity building is needed, to
insights in capacity building programmes for networking from a grassroots
perspective, as well as from the perspective of networking practitioners.

We hope you will enjoy reading this issue and find some insights that
inspire you in your work.
The Guest Editors
Urs Karl Egger, Georg Buchholz, and Marc Steinlin
together with Chief Editor Lucie Lamoureux
