Knowledge Sharing events - November 2012, Washington
Two knowledge sharing workshops were held in Washington, D.C. this November, on consecutive days:
12 November - hosted by NREL and REEEP: "Linked Open Data – learn how to make open data work for your organization" For more information, visit the workshop website http://en.openei.org/wiki/Open_Data_Workshop_2012.
13 November - a two-part Workshop hosted by the World Bank: "Discovering the New World: A live demonstration of the State of the Art in Climate Data and Knowledge Tools"
Part 1 was an open workshop as part of the World Bank's Climate Change Knowledge Forum. There was 30 in the room (half Bank, half outsiders), and a further 15 joining the slightly crackly webcast – which can be accessed at: http://worldbankva.adobeconnect.com/p3lrvh96iii/ The presentations given are available below.
Part 2 was a 'Knowledge Sharing Clinic' where six knowledges initiatives shared their real world challenges in a peer review setting.

2011 Climate Knowledge Brokers Workshop, Bonn
How do you begin a conversation on how web initiatives can collaborate more effectively? Creating a map of who is doing what, how, and for whom, is good a first step. This was how the Climate and Development Knowledge Brokers Workshop held in Germany in June 2011 kicked off. The ‘knowledge map’ that was created – in the form of a six-part matrix showing priority subject areas, audiences, and approaches – is already a useful resource in charting potential collaboration options.
The Workshop started with the hypothesis that “surely we can do this job better if we are talking to each other.” But it ended up going went well beyond that in turning good intentions on collaboration into a concrete action plan. It agreed on four joint projects, three future discussion areas, a Climate Knowledge Brokers working group, and as many as 42 individual bilateral follow-up actions.
The Workshop was co-sponsored by CDKN, GIZ, and PIK-Potsdam.
