CARE’s long engagement with companies in the design and development of inclusive business solutions has led to us publishing lots on this topic – but also understanding how much more there is to learn, and how essential it is to make sure that everyone in business, civil society and government has access to the best research and case studies. We are therefore delighted to become an Associate Partner of Search Inclusive Business.
Search Inclusive Business
There is a considerable and increasing number of publications that share useful insights and lessons relevant to inclusive business. Yet with practitioners, authors, projects and organisations scattered across the globe, it can be difficult for interested people to know what exists, where to start, and how to keep up-to-date on the latest developments and resources available. It’s a gap that Search Inclusive Business aims to fill.
The database is the culmination of six months’ work by the Practitioner Hub for Inclusive Business and the Inclusive Business Action Network in collaboration with Ashoka Mexico and Central America, consulting with key stakeholders and scouring the internet to pull together the most significant English-language publications on inclusive business in recent years, and a good start to a Spanish collection.
The database is searchable by region, sector type and year of publication and topic. Topics cover a wide range of issues relevant to inclusive business such as serving Base of the Pyramid (BoP) clients, sourcing from the BoP, finance for inclusive business, women’s empowerment, and results measurement and impact.
Looking for more resources and publications about inclusive business? SearchInclusiveBusiness.org includes over 1,300 reports, case studies, tools and factsheets about inclusive business, searchable by region, topic, type, sector or year published.
