UNDP’s innovation programmes are conducted through the Kolba Innovation Lab: an outward-facing platform that acts as a network to facilitate the connection of ideas, groups and initiatives. Through Kolba Lab, UNDP offers a platform for citizens and innovators to involve themselves in the development process, defining the problem they want to solve, and providing the space to incubate their idea, project, or social start-up. Kolba Lab has generated citizen-led projects in local governance, human rights, and the green economy.
UNDP is almost twenty-five years on the ground and we assist Armenia in: promoting renewable energy and energy efficiency in household and public sector; reducing the impact of climate change, as well supporting the country’s participation in international cooperation mechanisms; promoting green urban development; creating an effective system of disaster risk reduction; and strengthening biodiversity protection.
Due to its universal presence, with resident offices in nearly 170 countries and territories, UNDP is well positioned to comprehensively address and advance gender equality. For UNDP, creating equal opportunities for women and men is critical for equitable, sustainable development and poverty reduction.
UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone.
