What Difference Do Cooperatives Make? Global Outcomes Report

What Difference Do Cooperatives Make? (WDDCM) is a four-year research project conducted by OCDC’s International Cooperative Research Group that looks at the difference that primary cooperative societies are making in the lives of their members across four countries – Kenya, Peru, Philippines, and Poland.

The research was designed to examine the hypothesized “cooperative difference,” if any, across sectors, and to present its findings at a high level, grounding research findings within national contexts. The Global Outcomes Report draws together the key outcomes from the four countries and explores their implications for policy and action.
