Working Group

Adopted at the end of the high-level event held in parallel with the 70th United Nations General Assembly in September 2015, the joint declaration of the International Leading Group on SSE sets its priorities.

Thus, following a meeting on June 16, 2016, the ILGSSE committed to the creation and running of three working groups on the priority themes for SSE, which are:

  • the legal framework: developing a better foundation of SSE by strengthening national frameworks and creating an international legal guide;
  • financing: preparation of an overview of the financing of SSE and the organization of the international conference in order to facilitate the start-up and initiating projects and;
  • impact: contribute to the development of new wealth indicators to measure the impact of SSE on the national and local economy, human development and sustainable development.

In 2017, SSE funding is the main priority of the ILGSSE. As part of the international agenda for financing the development, the holding of an international conference of the financing for SSE as a contribution to the implementation of the Addis Abeba agenda has been included in the joint declaration of the ILGSSE.

In Bercy, on December 8, 2016, was held the meeting of launching of the working group which prefigures the organization of the international conference. As part of this participatory initiative, step-by-step, several meetings and conferences were held in Quebec and Montreal (Canada) on 31 March 2017, in San José, Costa Rica, on 18 and 19 April 2017 and in Seoul from 26 to 30 June 2017.
