Good practices in international cooperative development: new research is out

Cooperatives Europe releases today its latest publication “Good practices in international cooperative development: Why creating a knowledge sharing culture is key for international cooperative development work”. Among the authors, Camilla Carabini has been in charge of carrying on part of the research in behalf of Coopermondo. Alongside, a brochure has been released capturing the key features of the research.   
Aiming to foster a better understanding of the methods and approaches used by the Cooperatives Europe Development Platform (CEDP) organisations in their international cooperative development work, the document maps the CEDP activities in diverse geographic and thematic areas, showcasing good practices and tools used by members.
This research is intended to encourage partnerships between CEDP members by highlighting each organisation’s specific expertise as well as potential synergies, and to enable external actors to better understand the advantages of international cooperative development as a successful development approach.
Carried out in the framework of the ICA-EU Partnership (#coops4dev), the new research was led by Cooperatives Europe, The Co-operative College, Coopermondo-Confcooperative and Kooperationen, and supported by all CEDP members.
Arielle Romenteau, Research Officer at Cooperatives Europe, commented: “This research is another step on the continuous work that CEDP members have been developing to promote the cooperative model in international development and imagine new ways to further evidence the cooperative impact. With this study, we hope to go further in sharing existing methods, and unlock the potential for new joint projects both between CEDP members and with other actors outside the cooperative movement.”
The report and the brochure will be disseminated at the ICA General Assembly in Kuala Lumpur and online:
