Abstract: In the framework of the EC project called ¿AquaKnow¿ an e-conference was organised on knowledge management for technical cooperation in the water sector in developing countries. The e-conference was organised by DG AIDCO and DG JRC and was held in June 2008. The chairman of the conference was Dr. Jay Bhagwan, Director of the Water Use and Waste Management in the Water Research Commission in South Africa. Some 145 participants from 67 organisations active in the water sector in Africa, in Europe and in Latina America participated to this e-conference. The organisations were public, private, NGOs, research and high education institutions, etc... This e-conference was an unique event to bring together an important amount of field experiences in treating the knowledge related to the water sector in the context of technical cooperation oriented to capacity building in developing countries. This technical report resumes the many ideas put on the table and extracts some of the conclusions that were used in the design and development of the Aqua know Content Management System developed by the Water4Dev team of the IES institute of the DG JRC of the European Commission.
