Abstract: The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) reports on international negotiations and shares knowledge from collaborative global research and development projects. This paper focuses on how locally-generated knowledge can be shared, as well as providing three case studies of how local actors are using traditional and online approaches. It identifies eight lessons from local knowledge sharing that are applicable to web-based knowledge management. More work is needed to understand the process of institutional cultures and their engagement with, or creation of barriers to outside knowledge.
