The project on “Knowledge Management” responds to the need of MdM in the Mesoamerican Region of building its capacities based on the results of the projects implemented so far in Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and southern Mexico. MdM is present in this area, having offices and professional and technical teams working in two main axes for the period 2017-2020: “Migration and Forced Displacement” and “Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights/ Violence against Women Prevention” This project is aimed at fostering conditions to articulate practice communities through ongoing training on Knowledge Management for MdM staff in the Mesoamerican Region. The need identified in El Salvador is to have all the implemented activities interrelated. With that aim, technical, professional and logistics teams must be strengthened to build “shared knowledge” on methodological processes as well as enhanced monitoring and assessment tools. The objective is to improve our performance by reinforcing skills and competences thanks to research evidence, to be ultimately shared via an internal and external “Communication Strategy”. This would allow scaling-up and replication of this experience to other MdM headquarters, in the Regional Meeting of MdM at the end of 2018. In the case of El Salvador, there is a need to improve the reports that account for the actions that we are developing in the country. Hence it is essential to strengthen the technical teams for the construction of “collective knowledge” based on methodological processes, better information management tools which will ultimately allow us to share both internally and externally the work developed by our teams. Our local partners in El Salvador, community-based organizations, NGOs, partners in our developing and humanitarian aid projects, will be actively involved in the activities of this project, thus ensuring MdM´s reporting capacities are also passed on to these local partners to strengthen their joint learning spaces. The role of the volunteer will be to support the reinforcement of the knowledge management strategy of the MdM team in El Salvador, in order to promote our two main axes: “Migration and Forced Displacement” and “Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights/ Violence against Women Prevention”.
