Dear members of RENAPESS,

Dear members of RAESS,

Dear partners and actors of the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE),
At the end of the 3rd Meeting of the African Network for Social and Solidarity Economy (RAESS) held in Morocco in April 2014, the National Network for the Promotion of Social and Solidarity Economy in Mali (RENAPESS) was designated to host the 4th meeting of RAESS in 2016. The “Bamako 2016” event will be held from April 18th-21th, 2016, at the International Conference Centre and the Palais des cultures Amadou Hampaté BA in Bamako. This Fourth Meeting of the African Network will aim to assess the situation of social and solidarity economy (SSE) in Africa, in particular by evaluating the progress of the implementation of the African roadmap for promoting the SSE and by identifying key concerns at the continental level. The meeting will also be an important opportunity for sharing innovative experiences and identifying courses of action to better position the SSE on the continent.
