This issue of the Knowledge Management for Development Journal focuses on the connection between the knowledge function in knowledge management for development (KM4D) and the facilitation function within multi stakeholder processes (MSPs). Both functions are key functions in innovation processes. Within KM4D, the emphasis is on knowledge sharing and learning, both at organisational level as well as within networks at systems level. MSP addresses systemic learning in society, involving various actors and addressing institutional functions that need to be improved.
