Published by: MDG Achievement Fund and UNIDO

This report intends to provide decision-makers with a basis for including knowledge management and knowledge networking in policy considerations related to development strategy, effectiveness and governance. It is not intended as a full, in-depth study of all the links between knowledge networking, network governance and private sector development, but it gives an overview of the various concepts, provides new findings on correlations between them and illustrates these concepts with country case studies. The report is the outcome of a request to UNIDO, the technical convener agency of the funding window “Development and the Private Sector” of the MDG Achievement Fund (MDG-F), to create a knowledge management concept that would support developing countries in acquiring and adapting private sector development (PSD) relevant knowledge to their specific contexts and needs, and enhance the knowledge capabilities of the United Nations system and its national counterparts and partners in the field of PSD policy.
