China must also raise the technological level of the economy by diffusing new technologies actively throughout the economy, improving the research and development system, and exploiting global knowledge.

    Korea and the Knowledge-based Economy: Making the Transition
    -Carl Dahlman and Thomas Anderson
    This book defines a knowledge-based economy as one where knowledge is created, acquired, transmitted, and used effectively by enterprises, organizations, individuals and communities. The book, based on a joint study by the World Bank and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, breaks new ground in its attempt to develop a comprehensive set of national policy responses to the knowledge revolution. The study focuses on Korea, a country with limited natural resources that has developed mainly through an outward-oriented, industry-led strategy based on large firms and economies of scale. Today, however, this industrial paradigm is being challenged by the rapid rise of knowledge as the principal driver of competitiveness.

    The Role of Knowledge Management and Information Sharing in Capacity Building for Sustainable Development
    An Example from South Africa
    -Rejoice Mabudafhasi
    The coastal areas of the Northern Cape, South Africa, and the transfrontier region with Namibia are in a state of rapid transformation from a mining-based economy to one supporting diverse and sustainable livelihoods. Land-based diamond mining activities are in the early stages of decommissioning while a number of planning and development initiatives are underway. Key obstacles to integrated planning and development in the region are insufficient and inaccessible information. Knowledge management and information sharing mechanisms can facilitate meaningful participation and promote decision-making at the local level. The Distance Learning and Information Sharing Tool (DLIST) is an Internet based knowledge management tool that promotes transparency and collaboration and provides open access to information resources for sustainable development.
