UNDP Pakistan Innovation work is rooted in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and cuts across UNDP’s portfolios. We support programmes and projects to mainstream innovative tools and approaches to develop more effective solutions to achieve greater social impact through co-design and intense collaboration.
We have used human-centered design to bring communities and stakeholders together to design solutions. We have expanded our non-traditional partner base by working with startups and creative partners who have brought fresh thinking into the organization.
UNDP Innovation is exploring and experimenting in developing solutions to frontier challenges faced by Pakistan. The Accelerator Lab – Pakistan has been created to re-imagine ways of making 21st century development happen, at a scale not seen before, by tapping into the relationships, resources and expertise of a global leader in development. Globally, UNDP launched in 2019 its network of SDG Accelerator Labs in 60 countries including Pakistan.
