Catching the world unaware, Covid-19 has sent the global economy and the lives of billions into a tailspin. In the wake of this pandemic, the public, private, and social sectors must come together to work towards a stronger and more equitable Asia as we build our way out of this crisis. At a time when foreign funding is declining across the region, “Asia for Asia” philanthropy must fill the gap—and the Doing Good Index shows how.

The Doing Good Index 2020 lays bare the vital role of the social sector and how the right policies and practices can unleash an enormous US$587 billion per year towards meeting societal needs. It provides a roadmap for how to unleash this capital by aligning incentives around doing good; mitigating the trust deficit; and maximizing private social investment flowing to the social sector. The Index has increased its coverage from 15 Asian economies in 2018 index to a total of 18: Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. It is based on original data gathered through surveying 2,189 social delivery organizations and interviewing 145 country experts across all 18 economies. Join us at Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHK) to hear directly from Ruth Shapiro, Co-Founder & Chief Executive at the Centre for Asian Philanthropy an Society (CAPS) and Mehvesh Mumtaz Ahmed, Director of Research at CAPS, as they present the key findings of the index and showcase how governments, philanthropists, companies and the social sector can work together for mutual benefit. Ronnie C. Chan, Chairman of CAPS and ASHK, will moderate this especially timely discussion given the vital role Asians social sector plays in social service delivery, and what is needed to strengthen the sector as it continues to support societies in coping with the fallout from the pandemic and building a more equitable post-Covid world.
