    • Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA), IFAD has supported several thematic networks (communities of practice) related to specific rural development themes, such as:
      • Agricultural water management (IMAWESA),
      • Rural finance (KMP),
      • Market access (SCAPEMA),
      • Monitoring and evaluation (SMIP),
      • gender mainstreaming and
