Enterprise and Job Creation

The creation of social and solidarity enterprises has a major impact on the economic development of their territories. By creating non-relocatable jobs and responding to the needs of local communities, they make residents more resilient. To enable the creation and development of these enterprises and reinforce their economic impact, local governments must ensure their access to adequate support, financing and markets, starting with local public procurement. Governments are also called upon to recognize and support different and innovative forms of SSE entrepreneurship, sometimes in partnership with the informal sector or the private sectors, to facilitate plural economic development to which all local stakeholders can contribute.
