C2D is developing a roadmap relating to knowledge management (KM) information systems and the integration of databases with web applications, for two organisations. The roadmap will facilitate the implementation, by these organisations, of programs targeting sustainable development and more specifically the productive sector in relation to food security in West Africa. The two organisations are the Comité permanent Inter-États de Lutte contre la Sécheresse dans le Sahel (CILSS – Inter-State Permanent Committee for the fight against Drought in the Sahel) and the West and Central African Council for Agricultural Research and Development (WECARD).
C2D is delivering these services through a project being managed by Africa Lead, whose objective is to build the leaders’ capacity to implement the Country Investment Plans within NEPAD’s Comprehensive African Agriculture Development Program framework. Hence, C2D’s team is conducting presentations of the roadmap in Burkina Faso and Senegal, as well as through videoconferencing for Mali and Niger.
The objective of the roadmap is to leverage modern KM business solutions and optimise the integration between databases and the Internet, in each of the two organisations which already design and deploy these databases to process and disseminate information across the scientific community and other stakeholders.
