The KfW (business area Development Bank) is an important partner for the “empowering people. Award”. Their latest annual report illustrates just how significant simple technologies and innovative spirit are when encountering the challenges of the present and future in developing countries and emerging economies. We were pleased to conduct an interview with Stephan Opitz, the Director General for Policy and Latin America Region within the KfW Development Bank. He is also a member of the “empowering people. Award” Jury. In our interview he talks about why innovation, simple technologies and social entrepreneurship models are significant for challenges in developing countries.
The interview is also available in a written version.
