Developed and emerging economies are witnessing several external and internal challenges, ranging from climate change, accelerated urbanisation, governance issues, financial constraints, capacity issues, and outdated policies and processes. There have been considerable efforts by all stakeholders to address the development challenges with focus on quality of life, business/investment reforms, increased technology adoption and increased integration with the global economy.
To achieve the outcome of these efforts, there is a need to address these challenges at speed and scale by adopting innovative solutions that are contextualised to local requirements, respond to the traditional structures, address the fundamental problems, and are futuristic and implementable. Further, these innovative solutions need to help in channelising the efforts of all stakeholders including private sector, government, multilateral agencies, financial institutions, citizens, academia, etc. to achieve the overall economic objective.
