About this event

Small is beautiful. Big is necessary. Where poverty and inequity remain large-scale issues, leveraging the insights and social capital of beneficiaries as active partners has enabled frugal innovators to tackle a broad range of issues, from slum resettlement, to education and youth skills development, to anti-corruption effectively on very limited budgets. Join us in a discussion of what frugal innovations in resource poor areas the resource rich areas should be paying attention to.
