The Sahakar Pragya Centre on Good Practices (SPCGP) is a knowledge centre that is dedicated to sharing good practices deployed across various activities and sectors in the cooperative ecosystem. Earlier, with reference to strengthening of the cooperative movement in India, the Ministry of Cooperation had highlighted the need to establish a knowledge exchange platform that disseminates good practices and successful models of various cooperative ventures across the world. For this purpose, cooperation between the International Cooperative Alliance - Asia Pacific (ICA-AP) and LINAC, NCDC was suggested . Accordingly, a CHINTAN SHIBIR - Brainstorming Session was organised by LINAC, NCDC, on 17th Nov, 2021, which resulted in establishing this knowledge centre to document and disseminate the various good practices deployed in cooperative ventures, across multiple sectors and domains.Thereafter, LINAC and ICA-AP also entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to further the SPCGP to implement the recommendations made in this brainstorming session.The key functions of the SPGCP are as follows
