Policy Showcase




Please note the Policy Showcase sessions will run from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.

Policy innovation is becoming a powerful approach to drive greater inclusive growth and to build resilient communities in Asia. New ideas are being explored in cross-sector collaboration by public, private and non-profit organizations to ensure the success of evidence-based social impact strategies.

The two-part Policy Showcase will be based on feedback from AVPN’s policy community on the kinds of policy initiatives they most wish to learn about. This approach covers a big range of initiatives from the set-up of national innovation systems to local/sector-driven innovative entrepreneurship and pro-poor strategies.

Policy Presentations  With 3 policy initiatives per showcase, each policy initiative will introduce:

  • The policy initiative and its objective in view of development goals
  • Who the stakeholders involved in this initiative are and their interest
  • The approach taken to design, draft and execute the policy
  • Challenges/successes of this policy initiative, lessons learned, immediate next steps
  • 3 questions to seek audience input on
Breakout Discussions In small groups, the audience will:

  • Feedback on the presenters’ questions
  • Share their own reflections
  • Relate experiences to support the presented policy initiative towards impactful outcomes.
Facilitator Feedback In closing, two experts drawn from AVPN membership will also provide feedback to the 3 presenters on challenges, opportunities, and suggestions for consideration.


This will be a closed door and highly curated session of productive sharing and discussions, drawing a cross-sector audience of specially invited director-level policymakers, AVPN members that represent funders, capacity-builders/enablers, and select social purpose organisations who are keen to build this body of knowledge.

Learn more about the policy presenters and their policy initiatives at Policy Showcase 1 (5 June) and Policy Showcase 2 (6 June).

Please note the Policy Showcase sessions will run from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.
