Africa) from 10 sectors of activity. The Top 300 cooperatives and mutuals

Cooperative Monitor is a project designed by the International
Cooperative Alliance (ICA) and the European Research Institute on Cooperative
and Social Enterprises (Euricse) to collect robust economic, organisational,
and social data about cooperatives, mutual organisations and non-cooperative
enterprises controlled by cooperatives worldwide. It is the only report of its
kind collecting annual quantitative data on the global cooperative movement.
