Sharing Knowledge for Community Development and Transformation: A Handbook

> DLR International in Canada for the Oxfam Horn of Africa Capacity Building Programme, with the support of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), August 2004, 162pp., PDF (...)

Sharing Knowledge 2 illustrates that information in all its forms is essential for freedom. Information is an important resource for human development. It is concerned, more specifically, with the five freedoms identified by economist Amartya Sen in Development as Freedom, as key for human and social development: political freedoms; social opportunities such as education; transparency guarantees as a right of every citizen; protective security against risks, such as ill health; and economic facilities leading to greater autonomy. This handbook is for women and men making use of information and knowledge for the realization of their freedoms and those of their communities.
This revised edition now has two additional chapters on HIV/AIDS resource centres and case studies on community information resource centres in Ethiopia, as well as updates in a number of the original chapters.  read
