Facing significant social and economic challenges and, in some instances, lacking major infrastructure may seem like unsurmountable barriers to innovation. However, many emerging economies are seeing it as an opportunity to adopt new approaches and transform themselves through innovation. These countries are using the latest technologies and novel methods cheaply and creatively to tackle intractable problems. In some cases, these governments are leapfrogging the most developed countries and coming up with solutions that are more advanced. This session explores how emerging economies are taking their challenges in stride and teaching us all valuable lessons.
