Jugaad or ‘frugal innovation’ approach was always an inherent feature and a unique offering of Global South. This creative approach can be borrowed for wide-scale adoption and large-scale change for dynamic social impact. With this in mind, FIF was created to explore Global South’s fascinating potential, develop a platform to amplify what is happening across the region, and bring innovators together to learn, share and scale up low-cost models.
The seventh forum will explore the theme of ‘The Future of Development in a Post-Pandemic World,’ and connect non-profit innovators, social entrepreneurs and emerging leaders to catalyse lasting change with limited resources. The conference will be designed to inspire more effective and impactful actions through discussions and debates recognising the understanding of what happened, what’s ongoing based on learning from the past, and what the outlook for a post-COVID future looks like for the Global South.
