Social Innovation Link(SOIL)

Indonesia, Thailand, Japan

There are different kinds of initiatives to bring about solutions to social issues in Asia. However, the lack of communication among the related non-profit, social enterprise, foundation, intermediary, and governments stakeholders creates redundancy and low market efficiency.

In order to overcome this challenge, the Social Innovation Link (SOIL) program includes specific knowledge and practice transfer projects among Asian countries to develop a regional eco-system that will help to accelerate the social innovation process in Asia.

This project in FY2019 is certified as beyond 2020 program.
