We are committed to the new Sustainable Development Goal of Decent Work and Economic Growth (Goal 8), and currently have international projects in Malawi and Sri Lanka. These are focused on supporting the start-up and development of co-operative enterprises.
Over the past 7 years, we have been active partners in the Co-operatives Europe Development Platform. This brings together European partners working in international co-operative development to share good practice and facilitate partnerships. This work has been instrumental in the recent signing of a multi-annual framework partnership agreement with the ICA global and regional offices.
