Lebanon's Ministry of Telecommunications, which provides state-run voice and internet services has a new portal.

Carlos Guadian is evangelizing K-Government.  He quotes from a UN document that states,

K-government distinguishes itself from other governments by focusing on establishing policies, regulations, institutions, processes, structures and capacities for knowledge, innovation and technology (KIT) acquisition and for using the acquired KIT to improve the quality of people’s life and work, including the quality of government’s own operations as well as the quality of governance system.

The UN's DPADM is building a body of research that looks at how effectively knowledge systems are used in governments globally.  The KIT acronym is an interesting one as it relates to e-government and its use to share and increase KIT.

So far, K-government, like igov, is a term that has not been widely adopted.
