Aphinya Siranart is the head of exploration at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Thailand, where she leads the organization’s portfolios on sustainable business, impact investment, inclusive innovation, and digital government transformation.

She is preparing to launch and lead the development of the first free online platform in Thailand, supported by the SEC, for businesses and impact-oriented organizations to better measure and manage their impact more easily. Aphinya believes in the power of digital innovation to address today’s complex development challenges and to create a more equitable and inclusive society.
