CESALC Network

The Economic and Social Councils Network for Latin America and the Caribbean (CESALC in its Spanish acronym) Network is a practice community that was formally created in 2013. It is promoted by EUROsociAL and led by Brazil's Economic and Social Development Council, with technical support from Spain's Economic and Social Council (CES in its Spanish acronym).

CESALC is comprised of six national CES's (El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, the Dominican Republic and Brazil), six state or provincial ones (Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Chaco Province, Jalisco, the Federal District of Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul) and two municipal ones (San Pedro and San Carlos in Brazil).

Its goal is to exchange experiences and promote reflection and joint learning to address the common challenge of the region's CES's: to achieve stronger institutions, improve their technical and operational capacity, and increase their impact.
