IFAD’s Engagement With Cooperatives: A Study In Relation To The United Nations International Year of Cooperatives- Evaluation Synthesis
PDF File Size: 1.58 MB | Download   
The Evaluation Committee of IFAD‘s Executive Board requested the Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE) to prepare an evaluation synthesis on the Fund‘s engagement with cooperatives, in the context of the International Year of Cooperatives, 2012. The objectives were to describe IFAD‘s evolving approach to supporting cooperatives and provide information on lessons learned and good practices that would contribute to further debate and reflection on the topic, both during the International Year of Cooperatives and beyond. Cooperatives are not the only farmers‘ organizations to receive IFAD support. However, as the United Nations has designated 2012 as the International Year of Cooperatives, it was considered appropriate that the synthesis should focus mainly on cooperatives. Other forms of farmers‘ organizations are also discussed, both in view of their importance and because IFAD documents do not often distinguish between cooperatives and other types of farmers‘ organizations. Other organizations covered by the
report are registered non-cooperative farmer associations and registered or unregistered economic farmer associations (potential pre-cooperatives). Small farmer groups for agricultural extension and various village-level committees (typical in agricultural services and community-driven development projects) have not been included because IOE followed the definition for farmers‘ organizations used at the IFAD-sponsored Farmers‘ Forum, that is: ―Farmers‘ organizations are membership-based organizations of smallholders, family farmers and rural producers – including pastoralists, artisanal
fishers, landless people and indigenous people – that are structured beyond the grass-roots or community levels, to local, national, regional and global levels. n this context, the vertical organizations established by cooperatives and similar organizations at the district, regional and national levels will be key to providing long-term solutions. However, it appears that despite difficulties in management and capacity-building, properly operated cooperatives and similar farmers‘ organizations can reach out and help large numbers of rural people, thereby improving their incomes and living conditions, and therefore merit continued IFAD support.
