Strategies for Re-Engineering Global Knowledge e-Networks
The purpose of this chapter is to take stock of the performance of the Global System for Sustainable Development (GSSD) for the purposes of identifying central tendencies and providing some insights into directions for re-engineering. In this chapter, we provide an analysis at one point in time. Our purpose here is contextual, that is, to remind ourselves of the fundamentals of knowledge and of knowledge networking designed for this particular system as well as its targeted domain, namely sustainable development. We also provide a review of the current design of GSSD and its implementation, as well as its implications for the next generation of distributed knowledge e-networking
