*TOPIC: SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP FOR INCLUSIVE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT IN THE
PHILIPPINES AND SOUTHEAST ASIA: LEVERAGING SOCIAL, POLITICAL AND BUSINESS
NETWORKS TO PROMOTE HYBRID VALUE-CHAIN APPROACHES *



*Abstract *

Over the past years, inclusive development in the Philippines has exhibited
protracted growth as poverty incidence continues to remain high in paradox
with the reported economic advance. Lila Ramos Shahani of the Philippine
Daily Inquirer recently reported last December 10, 2011 that “From 2003 to
2009, the economy grew by an average of 4.8 percent. And yet, instead of
decreasing with economic growth, the number of poor Filipinos actually
burgeoned from 19.8 million to 23.1 million.”



With the growing consensus to achieve higher annual growth rates and to
effectively pursue inclusive growth and development among leaders and
multi-stakeholder organizations in the country, there is an imperative to
develop and implement strategies that promote “hybrid value chain” (HVC)
approaches by leveraging social, political and business networks. This
fundamental priority to effectively integrate marginalized sectors into the
nation’s development agenda can be realized by leveraging social, political
and business networks to promote the creation of HVCs, thereby accelerating
the trajectory of social, political and economic inclusion among the
marginalized. Furthermore, these approaches could serve as a regional case
model within Southeast Asia to further promote and scale-up the potential
of a region-wide development agenda that caters to millions of marginalized
sectors.



Research must answer the following basic questions:



1.       How do social enterprises achieve inclusive growth and development
and attain its objectives by maximizing profit and balancing it with social
impact?

2.       Enterprises that utilize a Hybrid Value Chain (HVC) model – one
that leverages the capabilities and resources of the private, public and
citizen sectors – facilitate the creation of products and services to
address the needs of low-income population. How can social enterprises
maximize this model in order to address perennial social problems at scale?

3.       How can social enterprises benefit from the business, public
(government) and civil society sector in pursuing their social and
financial objectives and ensure inclusive growth and development within the
communities they operate?

4.       What are barriers and enablers that facilitate the integration of
the public, private and civil society sectors’ resources and capabilities
into the work of social entrepreneurs and how can these be maximized in
order to influence programs, policies and other initiatives that will
ensure the success of social enterprise work?
