The main thrust of this strategic objective is to build and strengthen networking among the many and varied stakeholders in forestry in Africa with the purpose of sharing relevant information among stakeholders in African forestry.

To achieve this we will employ the cutting edge in knowledge management concepts, processes and tools available for the explicit and systematic management of vital knowledge - and its associated processes of creation, organization, diffusion, use and exploitation - in pursuit of AFF’s objectives.

It is important to note that knowledge encompasses both tacit knowledge (in people’s heads) and explicit knowledge (codified and expressed as information in databases, documents etc). Our networking program will address the processes of knowledge development and transfer for both these basic forms.
