Innovation for Development

Innovation for development responds to the challenge of how we improve what we do, become more agile and adaptable, and achieve greater impact in fast-changing and complex environments. UNDP is using a wide range of approaches, methodologies and tools to tap into alternative and best available ideas, voices and technologies, supporting rapid experimentation and learning from experience.
