How local communities in remote areas address technological, environmental or social challenges are often overlooked by the state, politics, and in international development cooperation. In contrast, Regina Sipos views such grassroot initiatives as a major source for sustainable social innovation. In this podcast, she talks about her research in rural areas in Indonesia, how large-scale projects in development cooperation often fail, and how small interventions in local areas can provide knowledge to address global challenges.
