Promoting Social and Solidarity Economy is about contributing both simultaneously and in a mutually reinforcing manner to each dimension of the Decent Work Agenda. Enterprises and organizations of the Social and Solidarity Economy create and sustain jobs and livelihoods, extend social protection, strengthen and extend social dialogue for all workers, and promote the application and enforcement of standards for all. In this time of crisis recovery, the promotion of social economy within the Decent Work Agenda framework is a significant ally for implementing the Global Jobs Pact, from local to global levels. South-South and triangular cooperation are seen as an important means to tackle the challenges faced by the less developed countries. The Istanbul Programme of Action highlights South-South cooperation as an important aid modality and asks the developing countries to promote this cooperation with the less developed countries.
