The International Co-operative Alliance is an independent, non-governmental organisation established in 1895 to unite, represent and serve co-operatives worldwide. It provides a global voice and forum for knowledge, expertise and coordinated action for and about co-operatives. The ICA members are international and national co-operative organisations across 100 countries from all sectors of the economy, including agriculture, industry, services, banking, retail, fisheries, health, housing and insurance. Through its membership, the International Co-operative Alliance gives a voice to one billion of the world’s citizens. More information is available at: www.ica.coop.
Against the background of cooperative enterprises enabling people around the world to become protagonists of their own social and economic development, the programme ‘Cooperatives in Development – Peoplecentred businesses in action’ will work on promoting the co-operative business model in global and local development policies and strengthening co-operative organisations as viable actors in development processes in their own rights. This programme is led by the ICA global office, in coordination with the four Alliance regional offices for Europe, Africa, Americas, and Asia-Pacific.
