ILO-sponsored Communities of PracticeA Community of Practice (CoP) is essentially a group of professionals, informally or formally bound together through exposure to a common set problems or pursuit of a common set of solutions. The rationale for using the CoP approach is that it:
- Is one of the most cost efficient ways of working and that it;
- Improves service delivery and enhances individual and organizational learning;
- Increases ownership and helps shape policy through sharing knowledge and experiences; and
- Concentrates energies and resources around niche areas of work.
ILO constituents and other partners are encouraged to register and become members of the CoP which best suits their interests.
