Welcome to the UNDP Innovation Facility

 

Development challenges are increasingly complex, inter-connected and the pace of change is unprecedented. As these changes affect all countries across the globe, it becomes more important for development organizations to be able to respond to complex challenges with agile and flexible solutions, and shift away from business as usual. Since 2012 UNDP has been investing in exploring innovation by providing seed-funding to initiatives with the belief that innovation happens through practical explorations of new ways to address old problems.

Learn more about the Facility and browse innovative initiatives supported around the globe. You can search, sort and filter projects via controls on the right-hand side of the page.
