OUR FOCUS

Innovation and Technology

Innovation for Development

The availability of more and faster internet connections, satellite data and imagery, plus advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) have made our lives and our economies unrecognizable from just a generation ago. These innovations and others offer new means of addressing complex global challenges, with the potential to unlock long-term and sustainable prosperity for people and planet. However, this unprecedented transformation also poses a serious risk of widening the gap between the “haves” and the “have-nots” and fuelling even greater inequalities both between and within countries.

 

Tech4Good

As part of our commitment to leave no one behind, UNDP is engaging with these issues from both a programmatic and policy perspective. We’re harnessing technology and innovation to deliver more and better results in the countries and communities where we work.   

We are also supporting our partners to use innovation to accelerate SDG efforts: To accelerate government-led innovation efforts, we are increasingly supporting partners with formulating ambitious, measurable missions derived from the SDGs.
