International Cooperative Development Conference

11:00am, 15th November 2017

On the 15th of November, the #coops4dev team will host the open session "Building partnerships for the future we want" in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, whithin the framework of the International Co-operative Alliance's General Assembly and Global Conference. 

Partnership is one of the most important tools for the co-operative movement to contribute to sustainable development at a global level. Acting in collaboration with other civil society actors, local authorities and international institutions, co-operatives have the potential to deploy significant resources to lift people out of poverty, to empower local communities and to improve livelihoods around the globe.

During the Development Conference, delegates will have the opportunity to exchange about the added value of the co-operative model through partnerships, how to identify the right partner and what is necessary to make a collaboration successful.

Guided by first-hand experience and institutional expertise, the speakers will guide us through the challenges, the evolution, the benefits and the potential of partnerships with cooperatives.
