Mutuo is currently developing a Global Policy Guide for the International Co-operative Alliance. This will be a toolkit that can be used by the ICA and its members in their advocacy work on behalf of co-operative businesses worldwide.
The Policy Guide will provide a keen communications narrative and crisp policy recommendations that can be taken forward at a Global, regional and national level by ICA members, regions and sectors.
Detailed survey work of ICA members has already been carried out and presented to the ICA board in Bulgaria last month; these findings will inform the document’s final recommendations. We were delighted to receive 110 responses from across all regions from 47 different nation states.
The document builds on Mutuo’s previous policy work in producing the ICMIF Global Manifesto and the Business Council for Co-operatives and Mutuals Policy Blueprint for an Enterprising Nation in Australia.
The document will be completed and presented in draft at the ICA’s Global Conference in Kuala Lumpur in November 2017.
