What role for the Social and Solidarity Economy in the post COVID-19 crisis recovery?

This webinar aims to examine how and why the Social Solidarity Economy (SSE) plays – in a pluralist economy – a transformative role in pursuing the SDGs and highlight the urgency to unlock its potential to tackle the current structural economic, societal, social and environmental crises.

The session will also be an opportunity to present the United Nations Inter-Agency Task Force on Social and Solidarity Economy (UNTFSSE) statement on “What role for the Social and Solidarity Economy in the post COVID-19 crisis recovery?” Based on UNTFSSE experience and international evidence, the panel discussion will reflect on different roles of the SSE in a “better recovery”.

At an economic turning point for the country and as the Canadian government looks to stimulate the economy with significant investments in local and regional public infrastructure projects, it is imperative that government leaders leverage tools like Community Benefit Agreements (CBAs) and Social Procurement in an effort to empower diverse communities during this economic recovery.

Investment in infrastructure can be a key driver to reducing economic inequalities, supporting neighbourhood and environmental improvements and growing an inclusive, more representative workforce through a wide range of public infrastructure investments ranging from transit, to affordable housing, to high speed broadband, and many others.

Financial Co-operatives During the Crisis: What Role Do They Play?

In the current environment, where the cash flow of many consumers and businesses is collapsing due to lack of demand and numerous layoffs, financial institutions will both have to deal with the increased demand for non-performing loans and expose themselves to the risk of default by borrowers, who will have difficulty paying interest and repaying the principal. How are financial cooperatives affected in this context?
