The technical symposium took place virtually from 6 to 10 December 2021.
Fifty participants took part in the event which included resource persons and representatives of eight members (ILO, OECD, UNESCAP, UNCTAD, UNDESA, UNDP, UNHCR, UNRISD) and 12 observers (CSEND, CIRIEC, Diesis, EMES international, Euclid Network, EURICSE, EESC, GSEF, ICA, SSE International Forum, RIPESS, Social Economy Europe).
The event provided an opportunity to reflect on the achievements of the Task Force since its establishment in 2013. It focused on progress since the last technical symposium in 2019 and related action plan. It also discussed challenges ahead and strategies for the future. The Task Force members agreed upon key actions to be jointly undertaken by its members and observers in the next biennium. The Action Plan 2022-2024 is available here.
