e. Component Use


Content Commons Components are set up with the aim to achieve synergies in the planning and communications of development initiatives.

The components respond to a need for retooling recognized in the recent World Economic and Social Survey 2010 (http://www.un.org/esa/policy/wess/ ) (see also dev-trade-integration).

The Service Platform

The service platform consists of five dictionaries:

  • on interactions (interact)
  • on entities (ens)
  • on actants (information entities that fulfill roles in communications and planning)
  • on constraints
  • on indicators

and two atlasses:

  • an actor atlas, with actor maps for relevant territories;
    • each actor map has its own administrator;
    • actors' interactions comply to statutes that are listed in a statute book per territory;
    • multi-stakeholder initiatives are listed in an initiative book per territory; '
  • an initiative atlas, kc:initiative-atlas is forthcoming; it will contain three kinds of structured wikis supporting communications for multi-stakeholder initiatives (projects and programmes);
    • a baseline node provides a high-quality map of an area of concern;
    • a blueprint node supports agreeing a shared vision, and change targets for the area of concern.
    • an intervention or change node supports the implementation of an intervention, agreed by the stakeholders.
