‘With his mouth the godless man destroys his neighbour, but through knowledge and superior discernment shall the righteous be delivered.’ Proverbs 11.9

The capacity for knowledge as shown in the scripture above is simple enormous, whether for good or for bad. Goodness and progress has always been the produce of relevant knowledge exposure and application, translating into development. Destruction and misery is a direct consequence of devalued knowledge. The interesting thing is that the agents of this knowledge are not machines but rather people. The architects of this Agenda Knowledge for Development are saviours who are at the forefront of championing the cause of global human enlightenment. Knowledge is directly tied to delivery out of indigence into prosperity and abiding hope. Indeed, the number one vehicle that will catapult our societies at whatever level into genuine prosperity and unceasing progress is knowledge, not even money. Thus, the generation, interpretation, application and management of knowledge is the biggest agenda that we all ought to support. The beauty of it that it places all people at the pedestal of positively serving and contributing to human development across the board.
