Rural Cooperatives and Planned Change in Africa: An Analytical Overview. Rural Institutions and Planned Change, Vol. V.
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 is an overview of African cooperatives.
