Innovation: changing paradigms
Increasingly, we are seeing how innovation is becoming an important aspect in international development and for UNDP. In Latin America and the Caribbean, our innovation efforts are aimed at improving what we do by finding new ways to address complex regional development challenges.
As UNDP moves forward with the Post-2015 agenda, towards helping attain the Sustainable Development Goals, we are also given the opportunity to re-think the way we are addressing pressing issues in our region. Innovation, then, is not an end by itself, but rather it refers to the tools, approaches and methods that can allow us to better design and implement projects in a changing development landscape, to collaborate with counterparts and partners, and ultimately to identify and scale more effective ways to increase resilience, foster inclusion and promote sustainable development.
