Réseau Africain de l’Economie Sociale et Solidaire (RAESS)
The African Network for Social and Solidarity Economy (ANSSE) is a non-profitmaking association. It was created in 2010 at the initiative of 25 civil society organisations from various African countries. It brings together 22 country networks that are active in the field of sustainable and inclusive development.
Areas of work
Relationships, visibility and institutional recognition
Support national members in their advocacy and lobby to ensure the Network for Social Solidarity Economy is represented in the Economic and Social Council of the country in question.
Consolidate the presence of ANSSE at national, regional and international level through participation in meetings, global summits and thematic fórums on questions linked to sustainable development, globalisation and its socio-economic impacts.
Frame this approach in the context of African Unity and the strategy for South-South and South-North co-operation.
Networking, communications and capacity building
Encourage inter-cooperation between ANSSE members on the basis of sharing as well as the mutualisation of means.
Support and showcase members’ activities through capacity strengthening and expertise and by supporting members in disseminating and communicating on their activities.
