This study is a survey on the challenges which inactive cooperative projects face in Sistan and Baluchistan. It proposes the most effective solutions possible to activate these projects. The research method is based on descriptive. Having started since 2008, the Inactive Cooperative Projects Survey Program uses the classification of provincial active and inactive cooperatives broken down by township. Random sample is taken on the basis of number of active and inactive cooperatives in each township, with the inactive cooperatives of some townships fully included. The essential information is gathered through telephone interview with Cooperative managers and experts coupled with a documentary study on the records, including the data of similar projects, available the Provincial Cooperative Office. Study shows that as for the end of 2008, there have been 432 inactive registered cooperatives. In general, the most frequent cause rendering coops inactive include lack of funds, lack of skilled and trained members and inefficient management.
To help remedy the problems mentioned the following are proposed as worthy of consideration:
- holding specialized courses to make clear the nature of cooperatives;
- more funds to be allocated to cooperatives for the purpose of conducting applied research which would deal with each cooperative's concern more specifically.
- institutionalization in provincial cooperative sector through engaging well-famed trustful local figures to help reduce risks of financial contributions of cooperative members.
