Session Description

The South East Asia region has seen remarkable development in addressing key social problems in recent years with social investors from across the continuum of capital putting significant resources to address key issues pertinent to this area. Despite this progress there is still a long way to go to fully solve these issues and wider system change is needed to enable people across the region to thrive.

Investment into last mile initiatives can have a profound social and economic impact in South East Asia, combatting challenges posed by energy poverty, digital and financial exclusion and access to healthcare.

In this session we will be joined by a diverse panel to discuss the implementation of innovative, distribution systems that solve last mile problems and create social benefit to those in the region especially those at the bottom of the pyramid.
