4.5 Frugal Innovation & Inclusive Developement
An important aspect of frugal innovations, aimed as they are towards the BoP population, is their potential to increase these people’s involvement in economic development. In this lecture, Prof. André Leliveld will discuss this point: frugal innovation and inclusive development.
To answer the question how frugal innovations can be inclusive, he will first define what inclusive development means, and how frugal innovations relate to both consumers and producers at BoP. To further illustrate these points, he will answer the question if the TAHMO project is an inclusive innovation.
The key point is, just as frugal innovations are not automatically responsible, they are equally not always inclusive.
