Driving Locally Led Innovation for Development

Increasingly development investors and organizations are looking to local organizations to deliver both social impact and economic returns because they are  relevant, efficient and effective at meeting the needs of local communities. With this enhanced focus on local solutions, we are collectively challenged to do a better job at identifying, cultivating, and supporting the research, development, and scale-up of locally led solutions. Join this conversation to learn more about how development organizations are deploying open innovation and other approaches to support and scale local innovation, discuss where there may be challenges, and identify opportunities for collaboration.

Please note that language translation in French, Spanish, Nepali, and American Sign Language will be provided for this event. This feature is supported by Kudo
