The Asian Development Bank Knowledge Forum (ADB Knowledge Forum), organized by the ADB Sustainable Development and Climate Change Department and the ADB Knowledge Sharing and Services Center, will bring together knowledge practitioners and leads from international financial institutions and other multilateral organizations, internal and external partners, and ADB staff to learn and discuss knowledge management practices, tools, application of knowledge management in development institutions, among others, through interactive discussions, knowledge sharing, training, and networking.

The Knowledge Management for Development Forum (KM4Dev Forum 2007) aimed to provide a venue for Knowledge Management practitioners, both new and experienced, to interact, network, learn, and share experiences and concerns on creating, disseminating, transferring, and managing knowledge and information. The Forum also aimed to benefit the knowledge workers who will learn, create, and embed development knowledge into business processes and in drafting and designing effective programs. The forum was organized by the KM4Dev Community and the Knowledge Management Center of the ADB Regional and Sustainable Development Department.
