Unraveling Knowledge Brokering Partnerships
A Comprehensive and Collaborative Study on Learning Partnerships
The Dutch Knowledge Platforms for Development Cooperation are on a mission to revolutionize international development cooperation. By embracing knowledge brokering and partnering with organizations from Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs), they are driving inclusive initiatives that tackle crucial issues in the fields of inclusive development, human security, economic development, food security, and sexual and reproductive health. These partnerships prioritize mutual learning and diverse perspectives, pushing for equitable collaboration and decolonization of international development cooperation. However, the role of knowledge brokering in international development cooperation remains largely uncharted. The Broker and four of the Dutch knowledge platforms – INCLUDE Knowledge platform, Knowledge Platform Security and Rule of Law, the Netherlands Food Partnership, and Share-Net International – joined forces to embark on a comprehensive study, unravelling the complexities of knowledge brokering in international development partnerships. Our aim? To strengthen the bridge between North and South learning partnerships, paving the way for a brighter, more collaborative future.
