The three main goals of the project include:

  • Improving enabling environments
  • Enhancing support to cooperatives
  • Improving business performance of cooperatives

To achieve these goals, activities will focus on improving the legal and regulatory framework for cooperatives; building the capacity of local support institutions to provide quality cooperative development services; and providing targeted technical assistance to cooperatives, including a focus on member equity when possible with more advanced cooperatives.
