Embedding CED and the Social Solidarity Economy in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (Webinar recording)

Background

One of the main outcomes of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012, was the agreement by Member States to develop a set of sustainable development goals (SDGs).  Rio+20 did not elaborate specific goals but stated that the goals should address all three dimensions of sustainable development in a balanced way and be coherent with and integrated into the UN development agenda beyond 2015. 

The Intercontinental Network for the Promotion of the Social Solidarity Economy (RIPESS) is preparing recommendations for the post-2015 UN Development Agenda that would include a greater role for innovative social solidarity economy practices and networks globally.  RIPESS is currently undertaking broad consultations to ensure these recommendations are reflective of the priorities of social solidarity economy stakeholders globally.  

Presenters

  • Shannon Kindornay, North-South Institute (NSI)
    Shannon leads NSI’s work on development cooperation and is a researcher with NSI's Governance for Equitable Growth program, focusing on governance of the aid architecture, aid effectiveness, and aid and the private sector. Prior to joining NSI, Ms. Kindornay worked on human rights, governance, and trade and development at the Canadian International Development Agency.
     
  • Daniel Tygel, Intercontinental Network for the Promotion of the Social Solidarity Economy (RIPESS)
