We are writing to you because we need your help to demonstrate the economic impact of co-operatives by filling in the World Co-operative Monitor survey and/or urging other co-operatives you know to fill it in.
In 2012 ICA celebrated the UN International Year of Cooperatives with the first World Co-operative Monitor Report (WCM), demonstrating the effective role of cooperatives in the world economy. The following year the WCM report presented in Cape Town gave an additional picture of the situation by introducing a new framework for comparison. The two reports are available on the website.
The 2014 edition of the questionnaire is now available for compilation – don’t miss this opportunity to reveal your contribution to the cooperative movement. It will take only few minutes.
We would also appreciate it if you could encourage your members and other cooperatives in your country to participate.
