The Future of Asian Philanthropy Series, APC’s latest study, is a future-oriented research using scenario planning that examines what society could look like in 2050, and how philanthropy might fulfil its promise as a positive, impactful force in society.
Asia faces great uncertainty as it emerges from the global pandemic—with looming challenges of climate change, rising inflation, and geopolitical tensions in the horizon. As uncertainty mounts, how can philanthropists, foundations, and implementing organisations plan to ensure they remain nimble and impactful?
The study, which began in the midst of disrupted socio-economic structures during the COVID-19 pandemic, identifies key driving forces that will shape society’s development, lays out four imagined futures that illustrate different outcome from these forces, and suggests recommendations and strategies for philanthropy today to shape how Asia might look in 2050.
