Knowledge Networks – IISD

IISD's work on knowledge networks began in 1995 when it co-sponsored the Maurice Strong Taskforce on Priorities for Canadian Internationalism in the 21st Century. The taskforce recognized that the emerging knowledge economy opened the possibility for a new international development paradigm one in which distinctions between North and South would begin to blur. One of the taskforce's conclusions was that 'knowledge brokering' and 'knowledge networking' would become increasingly important tools for international development.
