About the product

This publication addresses the question of economic development, by analyzing the experience of three associations of agricultural producers in the underdeveloped regions of Brazil and Italy that have made significant economic progress through co-operation. The paper analyzes under what conditions can organizations effectively promote economic development of relatively poor areas and why some of them were able to achieve economic results through collective action, while others were not.
