Knowledge Exchange on Inclusive Technology and Innovation Policies

The Asia-Pacific region hosts some of the more transformative efforts to use technology and innovation for inclusive development: the grassroots movement solving local needs in India, small entrepreneurs earning a better living by trading online in Indonesia, women furthering scientific careers in Malaysia, research addressing social problems in the Republic of Korea, frontier technologies enabling better care for the elderly in Japan, and technology transfer enabling affordable access to clean energy in rural areas of Tajikistan provide just a few examples.

The technology and innovation policies programme fosters knowledge exchange and intergovernmental discussions, to raise awareness about and promote inclusive technologies and innovations.
