Although the existing literature offers excellent insights in the current practices to monitor and evaluate knowledge management (KM), some deeper issues have not been addressed explicitly enough to do justice to the philosophical and practical ground on which the Information and Knowledge Management Emergent (IKM-E) programme firmly stands. In order to redress these shortcomings, this paper, and another follow-up paper (Monitoring and evaluating development as a knowledge ecology, Le Borgne et al. 2011) offer a journey through the many fascinating worlds of monitoring and evaluation of knowledge management for development. This paper offers an overview of the field and where it might be heading.
