UNDP Accelerator Labs Map of Locations

Accelerator Lab

On September 21, 2019, the UNDP Libya Accelerator Lab officially launched, asking three big questions: how do we better tackle complex and fast-moving challenges? How do we identify the most relevant, locally applicable solutions? How can we learn faster what works and what doesn't?

The Accelerator Lab transforms our collective approach by introducing new services based on evidence and practice, building on locally sourced solutions, discovering, and expanding on what works, and using rapid testing and iteration to implement what works and go beyond the obvious solutions. Furthermore, combining the best understanding, ideas, and expertise to create collective knowledge.

What's Accelerator Labs?

The UNDP Accelerator Lab in Libya is part of a network of 91 Accelerator Labs serving 114 countries that collaborate with global and national partners as well as local innovators to develop new approaches to addressing the complexity of current development challenges and to be the fastest learning on sustainable development challenges.
