What do the Accelerator Labs bring to the development sector?

  • Radically accelerated learning. The Labs accelerate learning on two fronts. First, the Labs conduct experiments around portfolios of solutions rather than individual solutions, enabling us to learn about what works and doesn’t in weeks or months rather than years. Second, the Labs operate as an integrated global network, building on each other’s learnings about development solutions in real time. ​
  • A greater breadth of solutions. The Labs combine deep local networks that allow us to elevate grassroots solutions as well as source solutions globally, mobilizing a wide and dynamic partnership of actors contributing knowledge and experience.​
  • The ability to bridge to scale. The Labs build on UNDP’s partnerships with government to scale solutions. The development challenges Labs work on are determined with national partners and are priority challenges where partners are looking to grow or replicate solutions. These challenges might include climate justice, the connection between schools and job markets, or antibiotic resistance accelerated by climate change and poverty​
