Create an Inclusive economy

 
4. Create an Inclusive Economy
In a world with limited natural resources, sustainable development demands these are distributed equality, with fairness and transparency. Therefore, the Glocal Municipality must:
Guarantee equal opportunities both for men and women;
Ease youngsters’ and disabled people access to Municipality’s employment;
Stimulate economic proximity, of products and local business;
Introduce social, environmental and ethical criteria in procurement procedures;
Support social entrepreneurship;
Support voluntary service, especially among Municipality workers.

Os Países em Desenvolvimento (PED), expostos às ondas de choque do sistema económico e financeiro  global, viram a sua situação agravada com a crise atual e as consequências sociais e  económicas devastadoras da mesma. Apesar da diversidade entre países em termos de  impacto e capacidade de resposta à crise através de medidas contra-cíclicas, são sempre os  mais pobres e vulneráveis os principais afetados.  Uma economia fragilizada (fraciona) afeta todos os setores da sociedade: da pobreza à educação, da saúde à promoção do ambiente é necessário assegurar a coerência das políticas que permita um desenvolvimento sustentado de todas estas áreas. A União Europeia e os seus Estados-membros empenhados na prossecução dos Objectivos de Desenvolvimento do Milénio têm necessariamente de ter a capacidade de medir as decisões que adotam na reforma do sistema financeiro e económico mundial sob o risco de projetarem milhões de pessoas para a pobreza.
 
Também as Autoridades Locais têm aqui um papel acrescido. Anualmente as  Autoridades Locais gastam mais de 2 mil milhões de euros na aquisição de produtos, bens e serviços, pelo que o seu peso no equilíbrio do sistema económico e financeiro mundial é fulcral. Através de acordos de cooperação com os Países em Desenvolvimento as Autoridades Locais podem reavivar as economias locais de ambas as comunidades procurando a introdução de critérios sociais e ambientais nas suas compras.

Developing Countries have seen their situation worsened with the present crisis and its social and economic consequences. Although several countries were affected, the poorest are the most affected. A fragile economy disturbs all the sectors of society: from poverty to education, from health to environment protection it is necessary to ensure policy coherence in a way that allows sustainable development in all areas. The European Union and its member states, committed with the prosecution of Millennium Development Goals, need to have the ability to measure the impact of the decisions they take regarding the reform of the world economic and financial system to avoid increasing the number of people living in poverty.

Also Local Authorities have an important role to play. Every year Local Authorities spend more than 2 thousand million euros in the purchasing of products, goods and services, having a huge impact in the balance of the financial and economic system. Through cooperation agreements with Developing Countries, Local Authorities can invigorate local economies from both communities, especially by introducing social and environmental criteria in their procurement procedures.
