On June 20 2018, the Portuguese Social Investment Taskforce gathered to reflect on the progress made thus far regarding the national strategy for investment and social innovation set out in 2015.
The national strategy for investment and social innovation set out in 2015 was based on a report entitled “A blueprint for Portugal’s emerging social investment market”. This strategy was presented by the Portuguese Social Investment Taskforce and represents a mid to long term path towards a dynamic social investment ecosystem, to be achieved in 2020.
On June 20 2018, the Taskforce members gathered to reflect on the progress made thus far regarding recommendations from 2015 following a report prepared by MAZE. The report seeks to answer the following questions:
1. Have the action plans established for the first years been carried out?
2. How have the various recommendation areas progressed?
3. Which areas have developed the most?
4. Which areas should be prioritised in the coming years?
The first chapter of the report presents a general assessment of recommendation compliance, while the following five chapters detail the implementation of each recommendation and the achievement of their respective goals in the first years. These chapters highlight a few examples of initiatives implemented during this period, with the most relevance to the progress made in each area. The final chapter presents the main conclusions and priorities for the coming years.
