A thriving ecosystem plays a key role in solving large problems. It creates an environment for ideas to flourish and allows effective solutions to scale faster and further.

India has fast-growing communities of problem solvers who are working on its development challenges. It is well within our collective means to support them and enhance their ability to create change.

As the wise say – it takes a village.

The Centre for Social Innovation is working to build a thriving livelihoods ecosystem in partnership with governments, markets and civil society.
