IK Notes

 

October 1998 - January 2007

 

IK Notes report periodically on Indigenous Knowledge (IK) initiatives in Sub-Saharan Africa and occasionally on such initiatives outside the region. Each note explores in some detail key aspects of the development challenge in a specific local context, and describes locally-driven solutions which have led to substantive results in improving livelihoods of the target communities. The lessons of experience from these cases could serve to inform development practitioners in adapting the successful practices to other contexts with a view to scaling them up. It is published as part of an evolving partnership between the World Bank, communities, NGOs, development institutions, and multilateral organizations.

 

Some issues are also available in French, and occasionally in Portuguese, Swahili, and Wolof.
