The Asian Decade

More than a 5th of the world’s population is in South Asia, and the impact that this region’s performance on the Sustainable Development Goals has on the world is significant. The 3-day Summit will take deep dives into the role of government in steering national sustainability strategies and innovative finance, with a focus on livelihoods and climate action.

The convening will bring together social investors working across India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka. They will share knowledge, find collaborators, and scale solutions to address the biggest needs of the region.

VOICE OF OUR MEMBERS

The Asian Decade

The Covid-19 pandemic has upended our lives over the past months. We live in challenging times and there is certainly much to be frustrated about - Lives are lost, health and safety are a concern and restrictions prevent us from meeting one another in person.

However, as the saying goes: We can be the change we wish to see.

AVPN recently met up with some of our members across Southeast Asia to find out what some of our members are doing to not only build back better but also build forward better.

If irritated oysters can make pearls, what are passionate, frustrated, determined, and innovative social investors able to create in response?
