Innovation in the UN

Resource date: Feb 2015

All agencies in the Joint Meeting of the Boards have endorsed the Innovation Principles, originally developed by UNICEF.
These principles have also been endorsed by 10 other agencies and partners, including The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID, UN Foundation, WFP, UNDP, the EOSG (Global Pulse) and others.
An informal network (the UN Innovation Network, co-chaired by UNICEF and UNHCR) meets quarterly to share learnings and advance discussions on innovation across agencies.
Some donors and funders are already financing more ‘risky’ approaches to innovations - particularly through vehicles like the UNICEF Innovation Fund and portfolios of investment rather than individual projects.
