Pressing challenges like escalating sea levels, environmental imbalances, and resource depletion in Asia Pacific demand urgent action. Technology emerges as a transformative force, offering innovative avenues to address these challenges.
By leveraging the success of the first round of the APAC Sustainability Seed Fund, AVPN continues to mobilise continuum of capital into supporting climate solutions in the region. APAC Sustainability Seed Fund 2.0 is a USD 5 Million catalytic initiative aimed at propelling innovative technology-led solutions that tackle the most pressing climate and sustainability challenges in the Asia Pacific region.
With the support of Google.org and ADB as the strategic and outreach partner, AVPN will provide essential support to non-profit organisations that are at the forefront of driving change through sustainable innovation.
