Organizational challenges and the institutional environment
A comparative analysis of dairy cooperatives in Morocco
The research is a collaborative effort between the FAO and
Wageningen University & Research.
This study analyses the relationship between dairy cooperatives in Morocco and their
institutional environments. It compares ten Moroccan dairy marketing cooperatives and
suggests possible development strategies, support programmes and enabling policies in order to
address two important organizational challenges, namely effective quality assurance systems and
attractive and cost-efficient payment modalities for members.
We discuss ways in which the
institutional environment can be strengthened in overcoming these challenges, by looking into three
areas: internal organizational strengthening of the cooperative sector, public support with conducive
policies and regulations, and the facilitation of multi-stakeholder platforms to discuss, propose and
implement these policies.
