What is #coops4dev 🌍 ?
As people-centred businesses, cooperatives are owned and run by their members, who have an equal say in what their organisation does and how it generates and uses profits.
Cooperatives are a tried-and-tested model in international development, enabling people around the world to take control over their livelihoods.
Strengthening cooperatives is, therefore, an established way to empower people and local communities to take charge of their own development, putting people before profit.
