Co-Constructing Public Policy – the Mali Experience and the International Forum on the Social and Solidarity Economy
 
Wednesday, April 20, 2011, 12:00pm Eastern
 
Register TODAY and join us to learn about one of the innovative models of government and civil society partnerships for enabling public policy that will be highlighted at the upcoming International Forum on the Social and Solidarity Economy.
 
BACKGROUND
Jurisdictions with dynamic and strong social and solidarity economy sectors are also those that have effective government and civil society partnerships for the development of enabling public policy. Mali is a leading African example of how governments can work with civil society to foster supportive policies. The Mali experience is one of many that will be presented at the International Forum on the Social Solidarity Economy which will take place in Montréal, October 17-20, 2011.
 
Mali
The Réseau National de Promotion de l’Économie Sociale et Solidaire (RENAPESS), the National Network for the Promotion of the Social and Solidarity Economy, has been advocating for public policies since it was created in 2003. With support of the UNITERRA Program, RENAPESS has grown and is now recognized as a key partner by the government to co-construct a national policy. The «Politique nationale de l’économie sociale et solidaire» (Social and Solidarity Economy National policy) is in the process of being adopted by the Mali government. The RENAPESS President, Madani Koumaré was at the National Summit in Ottawa last year.
 
International Forum on the Social Solidarity Economy (FIESS)
Coming up in Montréal, October 17-20, 2011, the FIESS will showcase successful models of public policy development that involve government and civil society partnerships from around the world to support the social and solidarity economy. Approximately 1,000 participants including practitioners, researchers, funders, and government officials from Quebec, Canada and more than 50 countries around the world are expected to take part in conferences, thematic workshops, cultural events and site tours.
