WINDHOEK, June 29 — Namibia will officially launch the UN Development Programme (UNDP) Accelerator Lab on July 5, UNDP Communications Consultant Margretha Kampulu said Friday.
Namibia was selected as one of 60 country offices around the world to implement Sustainable Development Goals Accelerator Labs with different thematic areas, said Kampulu.
According to Kampulu, the lab in Namibia proposes to focus on strengthening and fast-tracking climate change adaptation to build climate resilient economies and communities through locally and regionally-sourced innovative interventions and knowledge.
“The objective is to find solutions that will ensure the best performance and communicate them to government actors who have the power to turn them into policies,” she added.
Meanwhile, the purpose of the accelerator lab is to create the world’s largest and fastest learning network in order to identify the best solutions for the 21st century’s global challenges. – XINHUA
