Collaborative efforts to building resilience amid the COVID-19 pandemic

As governments work to contain the outbreak and stabilise the economy, there is an urgent need for social investors to step up to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the most vulnerable communities in Asia.

AVPN remains committed to providing a powerful platform for connection and learning to support the recovery and continued momentum on key social and environmental issues that threaten our region. As part of that effort, we are urging our 600+ members to take the pledge and encourage their peers throughout the social investment community to join us in this important commitment.

The Pledge:

We as social investors pledge to support our investees through these four commitments:

  • Flexibility
  • Communication
  • Technical Assistance & Capacity Building
  • Share Knowledge
