Increasingly, data and evidence play a critical role in the social economy. For successful adoptions of evidence-based policymaking and investment, there needs to be considered thinking about the role of data and evidence in practitioners’ decision-making and policy-making process.
Drawing on the Singaporean and regional perspective, this dialogue seeks to explore ways in which data can be better leveraged to inform policymakers and social investors, and foster inclusive growth.
Questions to be addressed
- What are the challenges to (or unknowns about) inclusive growth in Singapore/Asia that data can help us resolve?
- What are some of the evidence-based approaches that different actors are using to address challenges?
- How can governments, social purpose organisations, companies, impact investors and foundations work together to build an evidence-based social and impact investment ecosystem?
- What are the likely future trends and implications in evidence-based social investment policy and practices?
