Issue
Knowledge
Basic observation
Knowledge is very powerful, and also a tremendous driver of socio-economic progress.
Prevailing response
The international relief and development community is very committed to the knowledge dimension. There are many initiatives designed to flow knowledge from the “north” to the “south”, and huge expenditures to study in the “south” so that the “north” knows more.
A better response
A better response to the knowledge dimension is to recognize how much knowledge that is of importance in the “south” is already available. “The fact that I do not know something, does not mean that it is not known.” In broad terms, more knowledge flowing from the “south” to the “north” is needed.
