Arab States

 

 

The Innovation Facility supported three initiatives in the Arab States. Citizen engagement is a major theme connecting these initiatives across the region. The opportunity for innovation for development in the Arab States is being driven by a number of factors, including demographics (the youth bulge), the number of countries in conflict and/or transition, the increasing demand for social justice, inclusion and equity, and the prevalence of technology. In response, we are seeing Arab States Country Offices explore a variety of new techniques and unorthodox approaches with their national partners, everything from design thinking to foresighting, to gaming for development.
