It was recently reported that the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) had launched an initiative to connect Cambodia’s public service sector digitally with that of other countries. The point was to find speedier solutions to developmental challenges.
The UNDP Accelerator Labs initiative is a new service introduced in 78 countries that works with people, governments and the private sector to work together with national and global partners to find radically new approaches that fit the complexity of current challenges. The labs are aimed at building the largest and fastest global learning network on development challenges.
UNDP Resident Representative, Nick Beresford said at the launch on Monday that the programme focuses on innovations in the civil service, public sector and other stakeholders in society to test and scale sustainable solutions to the challenges.
