Record of proceedings | 28 January 2011
The ILO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific in its response to the constituents request for better sharing of ILO’s knowledge resources, initiated the development of Communities of Practice (CoP), i.e. “interactive networks of committed professionals bound by a common interest” in various subject areas. Launched under the Asia-Pacific Knowledge Network on Decent Work, the first four Communities of Practice are now operational: Youth Employment (APYouthNet), Green Jobs, Skills and Employability, and Migration (AP-MagNet).

As the first and most experienced CoPs, APYouthNet hosted a rejuvenation event to take stock of the progress made on the portal since its launch in 2008. The event served as an opportunity to engage members from the government, workers’ and employers’ organizations to develop the network further and adapt it to their local contexts.
