How does the KB work?
- The KB is a structured collection of relevant information relating to nutrition in the context of developing countries and mountain areas.
- The KB is structured by topics. Each topic is briefly outlined and has links to further information that can be accessed. The KB develops progressively, according to the files and resources uploaded by its users, and users' requests for new topics.
- The KB is a global knowledge platform, featuring documents that are of interest for a broad community. Thus, it complements the "Country Libraries", which feature documents that are relevant for each MAAN Country: Nepal, Pakistan, Kyrgystan, Ethiopia, Peru.
- All users can upload files and share resources to be part of the KB and the Country Libraries. The KB and Country Library managers review the files and resources to relocate them in the right section, and add the proper tags to make it findable through the search engine.
- Files are uploaded through the "upload file" button located on the top right hand of the KB and Country Library sites.
