Strategy to Scale Social Innovation for Development
A Hands-On Scaling Strategy for the UNDP Accelerator Labs - Developed by a Team from Columbia University, School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA)
To accelerate progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), UNDP established one of the world’s largest and fastest learning networks focused on development challenges – the UNDP Accelerator Labs. Currently, 60 Accelerator Labs are established, supporting 78 countries facilitating grassroots innovation to tackle development challenges in different country contexts with a bottom-up approach.
This research project aims to provide a hands-on strategy including a scaling framework and toolkit for the Accelerator Labs to scale social innovation as they enter the next phase of their learning cycle.
