Partners include the International Co-operative Alliance, the UK Co-operative College, the International Trade Union Confederation, the Committee for the Promotion and Advancement of Cooperatives, and the African Union.
The new programme will provide assistance, through a competitive bidding process, under three “Challenge Funds” categories, including cooperative support services, cooperative innovations, and cooperative training.

Funding request below that amount can be submitted at any time during the year.
