About CoP-PPLD

The concept of “Community of Practice” (CoP) has emerged within development communities to strengthen the connections among likeminded persons who seek to improve, through joint actions and collaborations, both knowledge and practice.

The CoP for Pro-poor Livestock Development (CoP-PPLD) intends to be a global and inclusive partnership of practitioners, managers, researchers and other actors involved in livestock development that want to exchange experiences,manage relevant knowledge, and support learning across countries and institutions as an instrument to achieve better results.

The launching and pilot phase of the CoP-PPLD have been supported and facilitated by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), with the kind contribution of the Government of Italy and of the Government of Finland.
