We know that no country has got immunity for global climate changes. Each and every region would obviously suffer from the ecological balance in the system. There is a rise of 50 percent in Greenhouse emission since the 1990s, and climate change has threatened human beings due to which irreversible climatic adverse effects may occur.


 Climate change hampers the counties balance and affects those countries which are underdeveloped and have fewer resources. Minority groups, ethnic tribes, and disadvantaged people are not self-sufficient to cope up to tackle the extreme natural calamity and disasters. It can obviously ruin their livelihood and may cause a crisis as well. International Day of Cooperatives 2021 will be recognized for the international movement for cooperation and other acts.

Cooperative Movement:

The oldest record for the cooperatives is traced from Scotland in the year 1761. In the year 1884, a group of around 28 artisans came together who all worked in a cotton mill. In the north of England, they established the first known Cooperative. Which can be known as a modern business.

The cooperatives can be called associations by the means by which citizens can strengthen their livelihood with a valid contribution to the social and the economic advancement of a community as well as the nation.
