3.1 Two cases studies
I would like you now to carry out the following activity, which I will then discuss.
Activity 5 Understanding resilience in the Mzuzu Coffee Planters Co-operative Union (MZCPCU) and the Timber Millers Co-operative Union (TMCU)
As you read each case study, using the resilience framework, make notes on:
- The ways in which each case has demonstrated resilience.
- The challenges that might constrain resilience in each case.
- Any issues you would want to know more about or which might concern you in terms of future resilience.
Note: to help you order your thoughts on the evidence in the case studies, you could use a table such as the one below. When you are considering the dimension of innovation, try to identify what type of innovation or upgrading has taken place.
|Co-operative X||Demonstration of resilience||Constraints on resilience|
|Role of government|
