COOPI Meeting 2019 - 9th edition

The 9th edition of COOPI Meeting begins this afternoon, Monday September 23rd, in Milan. It is the annual appointment of COOPI, the historical NGO committed to development cooperation, and involved in 30 countries in Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean.

The COOPI Meeting is an important moment for the life of the organization - 100 operators for 6 days will meet in sessions, working and discussion groups to share what COOPI does in terms of planning, tools, activities, to incorporate new lines of action and to relaunch strategies already underway.

Regional decentralisation is the main focus of this edition and will be discussed in two days. COOPI thus inaugurates a new stage in the process of decentralization started 5 years ago, consolidating in the coming months 5 regional coordination: Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East, Southern Africa, West Africa, Central Africa.

"The new regional structure will allow COOPI to be closer to the people and faster in its humanitarian responses," explains Director Ennio Miccoli. "The regional offices will have more autonomy than in the past and consequently the Milan office will have functions of guidance, control and support."

The COOPI Meeting will end on September 28th with "COOPI Cascina Aperta", the party at the historic Cascina Boldinasco in Via de Lemene - the headquarters of the organization. The initiative is open to the public and takes place during Milan Green Week. To find out more, click here.
