Knowledge Brokers Forum

The Knowledge Brokers Forum (KBF) is a collaborative space to promote knowledge sharing and dissemination around intermediary work in international development. Over 270 members share learning through debates, publication exchanges and discussions from relevant events.

KBF Members come from a range of sectors and contexts within the intermediary sector – ranging from health research librarians in Canada to academics in India. KBF is managed by the I-K-Mediary Network, of which IDS is a founding member, a global network of organisations that play a knowledge and information intermediary role in development, led by seven organisations worldwide including IDS.

Funded by Research Matters, a joint initiative of Canadian International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
