Communities of Practice
Communities of Practice (CoPs) and networks are important ways to develop, capture, curate and share knowledge, especially by building on the collective knowledge of members.
IFAD supports a growing number of communities and networks, both internal and external ones. Here you can find the external-facing IFAD Communities open to anyone interested; you are welcome to join any of them and contribute your ideas, experience and content, as well as take part in on-line discussions.
