The Frugal Innovation Forum (FIF) is a platform for leaders from the Global South to connect and explore solutions to the world’s toughest challenges. Development practitioners, social entrepreneurs, activists, policy-makers, academics and changemakers collaborate to work towards impact at scale.
This year, we will explore innovations that can be scaled through hybrid partnerships, focusing on the theme of youth.
The Global South has an innate predisposition to what we call jugaad, or ‘frugal innovation’. These innovations allow adaptation and large-scale change with limited resources.
The conference will kickstart with an optional day-long field visit, followed by two days of compelling plenaries on disruptive models and solutions.
