Glocal Finance Project UE- Pichincha- S2M Mission

S2M Foundation is developing “Responsible Productive Chains” projects in association with various Local Governments in the name of the Productive Change Strategy Matrix, the reduction of poverty, the generation of added value and the local sustainable development that Ecuador is carrying out.

These projects promote responsible, social investment in order to change the matrix of production and develop a socially responsible model of “Business in the Community”, that would generate confidence among investors and be sustainable from a global-local perspective, with high quality import/export products of specific niches in the foreign market, based on the principles of equity and fair-trade.

Pichincha’s province in Ecuador and the Gobierno Autónomo Descentralizado de Pichincha (Pichincha´s local govern) have a long work trajectory with S2M Foundation (Sustainability, Measurement and Mediation) to create process of reforms not only social but also fiscal as well as process of project design. In this schema of mutual trust, both entities signed a cooperation agreement that includes the European Commission, represented by its Delegation in Ecuador, as a strategic partner of alliance and cooperation due to financial support.

In this way, the necessity of working together with the real sector of Pichincha’s province has been set out by mobilizing intentions to generate synergies and by incorporating territorial actors to improve, create and optimize conditions for the identification and exportation of clue and emblematic quality products of Pichincha’s territory.

An important component of this action will be the Glocal Finance Project UE- Pichincha- S2M Mission expects to host in November 2014 (4th to 7th), with a delegation formed of representatives of the productive channels that are part of these projects, as well as the representatives of others sectors ̶ state, market, NGOs, communities, means of communication and global institutions ̶ also linked with these chains.
