efforts, which are often based on nontransferable international practices and struggle to supportinnovations that are not yet fully understood.Innovation Can Support Infrastructure Progress:Innovation can also promote infrastructuredevelopment. For example, in the early 2000s, in Africa, the growth of telecom pioneer Airtelwas hindered by insufficient cellphone coverage in countries like Congo, Gabon, and Zambia.But the company did not just wait for government investments. It took matters into its own handsand invested in cell towers itself, as well as other complementary infrastructure such as roads, tobe able to service the towers effectively, and water supply, so workers and their communitiescould have basic water access in remote areas.Innovation and Entrepreneurship Can Promote Environmental Sustainability:There isplenty of evidence that this generation of entrepreneurs and innovators, especially younger ones,tend to be more environmentally conscious than businesspeople from previous generations andgovernment bureaucrats. In fact, many startups are set up specifically to mitigate environmentalchallenges, for example, innovation contributes to the circular economy by using recycled plasticmaterials to form Lego-style bricks which are then used to build affordable housing.
