We believe there are lessons to learn about the support of “inclusive innovation” from emerging economies. Over the last year, we have been working with the UNDP’s Regional Innovation Centre to look for emerging models of inclusive innovation across South-East Asia. Building on Nesta’s inclusive innovation policy framework, our aim was to identify emerging models of inclusive innovation to serve as inspiration and guidance for policymakers.

Our findings - published jointly by Nesta and UNDP - have relevance beyond the region. We were particularly struck by the richness of the notion of inclusive innovation in the emerging economies we focused on (Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Vietnam). This led us to the question - what can countries like the UK learn? Below, we share three insights.
