UNDP Bolivia Accelerator Lab

Proactive people-public-private partnership building to understand complex systemic challenges collectively through experiment-driven sustainable development



Our team aims to reimagine development and accelerate systems transformation towards productive, inclusive and resilient societies by: 

  • Identifying local innovators, tapping into their expertise and creating actionable insights. 
  • Prototyping agile solutions to support subnational and national governments’ demands. 
  • Enabling digital transformation and data capacity-building for the whole of society. 
  • Co-designing portfolios of experiments to learn what works and what does not when dealing with complex systemic challenges. 
  • Building proactive coalitions to foster digitally-inclusive ecosystems. 
  • Learning through real-world experiments how to turn futures-thinking into futures-doing.

Our work is looking to accelerate impact at different levels: 

  • At the community level, with digital inclusion in neighborhoods
  • At the city level, crafting development options to generate better job opportunities for youth and women. 
  • At the metropolitan level, with big spatial data for urban sustainability. 
  • At the rural level, by promoting digital access to rural credit. 
  • At the national level, by assessing Bolivia’s digital readiness to accelerate the national digital transformation agenda.
