Accelerator Lab Philippines (00118909 / 00115528)
Background and Description
UNDP is aiming to build the largest and fastest global learning network embedded in its organization through the setting up of almost 100 Accelerator Labs all over the world. Joining this call, UNDP Philippines has set up its own Accelerator Lab and has taken on the task to pursue interdisciplinary approaches and non-linear solutions that crowd in the collective efforts of variety of partners and tap into local insights and the knowledge of people closest to the problem and the solutions. Through the Accelerator Labs, UNDP aims to introduce a range of new services—including sensemaking, collective intelligence, solutions mapping, and experimentation—to accelerate the testing and dissemination of solutions within and across countries. The Network surfaces and reinforces locally sourced solutions at scale while mobilizing a wide and dynamic partnership of actors contributing knowledge, resources and experience. In the Philippines, the Accelerator Lab Philippines (ALab PH) is involved in exploring, mapping solutions, and testing these in the frontier development challenges of sustainable cities, zero extreme poverty, marine litter, and inclusive, grassroots-based, and data-driven innovation.
ALab PH sits within the Impact and Advisory Team (IAT), which leads the policy research and advocacy, partnerships building, and innovation and pipeline development of the UNDP Country Office. A newly established unit, IAT seeks to standardize the commissioning of research, production of knowledge products, and their dissemination and advocacy. IAT and ALab aim to deepen the systems and innovations that it has so far introduced by codifying and systematizing—and to the point feasible, digitalizing and automating—the development, quality assurance, and knowledge management mechanisms that it has so far introduced for research and innovation. Rather than a static manual of operations, they plan to develop a UNDP PH Research and Innovation Portal that is built on an open-source cross-platform web service stack, such as, but not limited to, XAMPP, LAMPP, MariaDB, among others, and linked to the UNDP's corporate Office 365 and Sharepoint tools.
