UNDP Accelerator Lab Network

7 May 2019

The impact of artificial intelligence on unemployment. Migration due to climate change. The influence of disinformation on democracy and conflict. The speed, dynamics and complexity of today’s challenges are fundamentally different from previous eras in history.

Our current approaches are not making enough progress against 21st century challenges. The outside world is moving faster than many of our development solutions are adapting.

Effectively addressing these challenges doesn’t just require new solutions. It requires radically new approaches that fit the complexity of current development challenges.

How development works needs a new set of pathways and parameters, designed with courage and creativity.


At UNDP, we are disrupting the way we deliver, think, invest and manage to perform faster, better and at scale. This is the #NextGenUNDP, walking the talk as an innovative, agile partner – and inspiring others to do the same. The Accelerator Labs are part of our effort to inject innovation into our organizational DNA. This network of 60 Labs will create new capabilities for national partners to respond to exponential changes and 21st century challenges.
