Innovate. Create. Change. New ideas that power SDG progress in Asia and the Pacific

Guidance and systemization of experiences

UNDP’s innovation journey in Asia and the Pacific has gone far. Our goal was to break the mould, disrupt conventional thinking and imagine the changes we want to see. We set out to scan for new ideas, test them, learn from those that do not work, and work with Asia and the Pacific governments and other partners in scaling up those that do. The stories in this report show how UNDP is supporting governments in Asia and the Pacific in using innovation to reach people, improve well-being, provide services and mobilize financing as never before. In each case, new thinking has been the starting point, and the definition of innovation has been broad and responsive to circumstances in individual countries. Some solutions draw on cutting-edge technology; others are about behaviour change; some are a mix of both. All are producing advances that collectively cut across the 2030 Agenda and the achievement of its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
