Thank you Abhas for tapping into unlikely sources of inspiration and even aspiration. I've often thought about how private companies reach consumers in the most remote areas and how we as development folk can learn from their handbook. More importantly how can we tap into their distribution networks but perhaps leveraging the empty trucks that come home to help farmers get goods to market or perhaps include health information along with milk cartons when delivered. Some of these ideas will work while others may not but I suspect using the expertise and networks of corporates may do much more for fostering innovations in development than simply chasing their scarce CSR dollars.
