TITLE OF CONSULTANCY: C4D Consultant Knowledge Management
DUTY STATION: New Delhi
DURATION OF CONSULTANCY: September – December 2017
CLOSING DATE: 9 August 2017
BACKGROUND & PURPOSE:
Knowledge management is essential for generating evidence, documenting, using evidence and disseminating good practices and lessons learnt to have a sound basis for policy influencing. The Communication for Development (C4D) programme has a knowledge management framework (attached) which also draws from the UNICEF India Knowledge management framework. The framework uses a three pronged approach as explained below:
Three-pronged approach to KM:
For the purpose of C4D, KM follows a three-pronged approach to leverage the programme activities for broader application, replication, and learning.
a. Learning (Knowledge Generation)
To be useful, knowledge should not remain tacit or stove-piped within the program. Key to this component, then, is documenting the methodologies, approaches, and findings.
This includes, but not limited to: briefs, reports, success stories, case studies, and tools.
b. Sharing (Knowledge Dissemination)
Once documented, it is important to disseminate and distribute the key findings, lessons (what worked; what didn’t work; why it didn’t work), and methodologies developed. To that end, KM will use a variety of available channels to maximize reach and leverage existing audiences and vehicles. This includes: email blasts, personal meetings, visits to learning sites, newsletters, websites, and other channels as appropriate. Sharing also includes in-person and virtual events, seminars, and roundtables. Finally, this component will create linkages with parallel systems to ensure that knowledge generated under specific projects/ interventions can be shared beyond the project’s life.
c. Doing (Knowledge Application)
Lastly, but most importantly KM seeks to facilitate new learning (knowledge generation) by making it easier to build on past work and experiences. This means both “push” and “pull:”
1) pushing relevant information to relevant audiences to foster evidence-based decision-making and program design, and
2) making information more accessible to pull practitioners who are seeking data and information.
KM will support this through more consistent and targeted knowledge dissemination and by enriching the central repository that practitioners can use to ground their BCC implementation plans.
In order to implement the C4D KM framework, the C4D WP of 2016-2017 contains a distinct knowledge management activity which entails tasks for which the program requires a KM consultant.
Alongside, UNICEF India’s next five years Country Program (2018-2022) is near final. The consultant is required to provide relevant secondary research analysis for the same and support in quality assurance of current program cycle results documentation.
