The AfCAP Communities of Practice (CoPs) are interactive networks of practitioners working together on real-time policy, technical, and market solutions related to climate resilient and low emission development. A community of practice approach was favoured over conventional knowledge-sharing networks that tend to engage in top-down development assistance. A community of practice comprises a network of engaged experts and practitioners from a shared sector or working area who form a group to regularly engage in peer-to-peer learning to improve their personal and collective group knowledge. They promote forms of exchange, both inside and outside of formal communication channels, and provide an inclusive, member-driven experience. The CoPs are supported by the working groups of the Global Climate Action Partnership (GCAP).
