Sustainable development is a knowledge-based set of practices. A knowledge based society and knowledge sharing environment can make the development process sustainable and goals of the development process achievable. Gilgit-Baltistan is a remote region of Pakistan situated in the north part of the country. Being a rural area it has been subject to the development process by many NGO’s, donor agencies and government agencies. For the past two decades many projects have been initiated on various scales but these initiatives need sustainability. The modern day’s information and communication technology has gradually become parts of the development process. There is need of a platform for information resource sharing and integrative way of development activities to sustain the rural development process. This study aims to analyze the requirements for a knowledge management system (KMS) in the rural development of the region Gilgit-Baltistan Pakistan. The study has been designed by analyzing the stakeholder’s interest and information needs of the development process and system requirement analysis of knowledge management system (KMS). In this regard Interviews were conducted from 15 organizations in the region. Qualitative method has been approached through a conceptual framework of ICT on development activities. For analyzing of the data, plate form concept of OCROSAN has been selected together with two concepts of ICT artifacts, knowledge as proxy and ICT as supporting development by Sein & Harindranath (2004). This study shows by identifying stakeholders, information on development activities, ICT oriented activities as knowledge enabler, the rural telecommunication infrastructure and digitization process as the initial requirements of the KMS.
