International knowledge networks and platforms

In an increasingly globalised and complex world, international learning, communication and collaboration around global development challenges are major avenues for realising impact. Rapid developments in Information & Communication Technology are opening new opportunities for international networking and learning.

KIT Royal Tropical is uniquely placed to support knowledge networks, organise and host secretariats or coordination hubs and facilitate network functioning and activities. As an independent, neutral knowledge institute, KIT plays a convening role. We bring together stakeholders with different backgrounds and agendas, facilitate an open exchange, and encourage collaboration and innovation for change.

Facilitation and content expertise

Alongside our network facilitation, communication skills and international networking support infrastructure, our advisors have extensive content expertise in health, agricultural development and gender.

KIT-facilitated networks and platforms foster long-term engagement and ‘ownership’ of network members, at all levels. Knowledge generation and dissemination are prioritised. Through our networks and platforms, we put knowledge to work in development practice and policy.
