The UNDP Accelerator Lab is a new initiative and a global learning network established to address the development challenges. The idea is to transform our collective approach by introducing new protocols, backed by evidence and practice, which accelerate the testing and dissemination of solutions within and across countries. Four key approaches sit at the core of the Labs’ work:
Accelerator Lab has been exploring, mapping solutions and experimenting within the domain of air pollution, air quality data, data visualization. Though this process the team has mapped the complexity of the problem: to change the situation with air quality in Ukraine, focused efforts needed by government, businesses and civil society. The ecosystem is currently lacking consensus and comprehensive understanding of the pollution levels, its impact on heath and wellbeing of communities. On the other hand, potential measures to counter air pollution might require substantial changes in applied technologies in large polluting enterprises. Lastly, the issue of indoor pollution remains largely unexplored for development partners in Ukraine.
At the same time, Ukraine is lucky to have numerous teams that work on the issue of air pollution – there are technological teams, who develop data and engineering solutions, local businesses that invest in better quality and civic activist who know cases of pollution in depth. However, these actors remain largely uncoordinated and detached from each other.
With regard to abovementioned, Accelerator Lab is looking for an experienced analyst who will take lead on mapping the existing ecosystem of air quality in Ukraine. The consultant will be required to identify key stakeholders on national, regional, local levels, projects, organizations, data sets and challenges and create a public ‘catalogue’ of the elements of ecosystem. Successful implementation of the assignment will require development of taxonomy, identification of methodology and the open-source platform where it will be published.

Main objective of the assignment

The focus of the map should not be solely on the actors in the system. It should also represent connections/relations among the issue components.
