Cooperatives and Development in Asia: A Study of Cooperatives in Fourteen Rural Communities of Iran, Pakistan and Ceylon. Rural Institutions and Planned Change, Vol. VII



In the 1960s, UNRISD carried out research projects on development planning and rural cooperatives. Work on cooperatives, which involved 40 case studies in 13 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, identified their advantages in terms of regulating markets and promoting more equitable forms of resource allocation, but it also revealed serious limitations. This volume provides an analytical report on the cooperatives studied in Asia.
