2021 Highlights: Accelerator Lab in Ethiopia

February 16, 2022

UNDP Ethiopia’s accelerator lab launched in December 2019, as part of the largest and fastest learning network of 91 accelerator labs across the world. The lab is a space for UNDP to explore, test and grow innovations for development challenges through collaboration and partnership. We are bringing a new way of working to meet the 2030 sustainable development goals by mapping, testing, and growing grassroots solutions that are crafted by those close to the problem.

After our first year of work on frontier issues like youth unemployment and COVID-19 in line with UNDP’s and Ethiopia’s development agenda, 2021 was a year of deep diving into our portfolio on solid waste management, expanding our support on COVID-19 and exploring new challenges in knowledge management.
