Have you ever wondered how a knowledge society public policy (KSPP) is built? Are you responsiblefor generating or implementing a KSPP for your country, region, or city? Do you have to monitor andevaluate an existing KSPP? Are you a civil servant concerned with the development of knowledgesocieties? Are you a citizen worried about how knowledge societies will contribute to your country?sdevelopment? Then this handbook is for you.This handbook is grounded on existing knowledge and practices to provide policy-makers, civilservants and educators with an actionable conceptual framework for understanding and assessingthe relationships between the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development1 and itsSustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and knowledge societies. By identifying gaps as well asstrengths, the handbook hopes to enable Rwanda to more effectively deploy resources and implementappropriate policy measures to build its knowledge society.The handbook has been developed to support the training sessions on knowledge societies and policyfor an executive training course in Rwanda on 18 and 19 May 2017 but, appropriately adapted, it can beused for further training sessions in Rwanda or in other African countries. For reference and reflectingpurposes it is mostly based on threeprevious related works: ?Public Policies for Information Society: AHandbook? (IFAP ? UNESCO, 20092 ); ?Knowledge Societies Policy Handbook? (IFAP ? UNESCO andUNU EGov, 20163 ); and ?Africa as a Knowledge Society: A Policy Handbook? (IFAP ? UNESCO, 20134). Italso reflects on Rwandan policy documents but takes into consideration the African continent in general.Most of the content has been specifically researched for the training session.
