About the UNDP Global Centre Singapore

The Global Centre for Technology, Innovation and Sustainable Development is a joint initiative by the Government of Singapore and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), aimed at identifying and co-creating technological solutions for sustainable development.


We believe technology and innovation – when applied thoughtfully and inclusively – have the power to make a positive impact on the world. They can also accelerate the development journey of a country. But coming up with life-changing solutions requires more than just innovative thinking; it also requires deep collaboration. And that’s why we’re here – to foster connections between unlikely parties, to generate bold new partnerships, to provide applied and technical knowledge, and to build ecosystems that make a real contribution to achieving the 2030 Agenda.

The secret to success will be in scaling sustainable development solutions, and we can’t do that without cross-sectoral input. To that end we aim to connect policymakers, practitioners, think tanks, leading private sector actors, entrepreneurs, and other relevant stakeholders in UNDP’s networks. With this system-wide approach, we aim to catalyse new insights and stimulate action on the ground in the countries where UNDP works.

Sharing knowledge across geographical boundaries and initiating multi-stakeholder partnerships will accelerate progress. We believe combining the power of partnerships and innovation is the key to a more sustainable future.
