Social Solidarity Economy and Sustainable Development Financing. Ripess contributions to the ICESDF 12 May 2014 Dialogue Session.
As the world becomes more and more interconnected, with capital flows over the states borders, it’s impossible to still consider the financial tools and architecture as being solely market-driven and oriented by private goals, interests and speculations1. We’ve seen consequences of this perspective such as fragilizing the poor, augmenting inequalities, and destroying the life conditions for future generations. That’s why financial tools and architecture should be considered and treated as essential public common goods, and therefore should be oriented by agreements where all sectors of society in the different countries, including the global marginalized and poor, have the power to define its form and means of implementation. Short put: There should be an enhancement of public driven financial tools and architecture, with transparent and participative governance.
That’s why we fully endorse the contributions from civil society organizations and expressed here by my colleagues today. They are fully aligned with the Social Solidarity Economy Recommendations to the Post-2015 Development Agenda along with other analysis and reports.
