COVID-19: Cooperatives at the forefront of the recovery

COVID 19 extract from WCM 2021

This chapter is a follow-up to “Impact and Reactions of Cooperatives to Covid-19” in the World Cooperative Monitor 2020 report. Both chapters focus on large cooperatives and cooperative groups, with the first chapter providing further discussion of cooperative characteristics that make them particularly suited to contributing to the recovery. To further explore actions taken by large cooperatives, the World Cooperative Monitor team carried out a series of 29 interviews with large cooperatives around the world to assess the impact of COVID-19, their reactions in the emergency as well as the actions they plan to implement in the recovery phase.
