Session Description: This session was delivered in English with live French interpretation. There is a wealth of evidence and experience about family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) programs. But how do we ensure that that knowledge gets put into practice? Come learn how Knowledge SUCCESS blended knowledge management, behavioral economics, and design thinking to find a solution to this intractable problem. Working directly with FP/RH professionals around the world, we used a five-step design-thinking process to analyze the barriers and opportunities to knowledge-seeking, sharing, and use and design better tools and solutions to support their work. Throughout the process, we identified key behavioral economics mechanisms that influenced their knowledge management processes, such as choice overload and cognitive overload, as well as ones that could improve the design of tools and solutions, including social norms and incentives. This panel session will share these behavioral insights as well as three new knowledge innovations for collecting and curating knowledge, connecting people to knowledge, and strengthening capacity in knowledge management. Will these innovations transform the way the FP/RH community seeks, shares, and uses knowledge to guide programs? Try out the knowledge innovations yourself in this session and let us know what you think.
