You might have heard that the UNDP Accelerator Labs comprise the largest learning network in the world, with 91 Labs and roughly 270 people across the globe. But did you know that they work in a way that is similar to a neural network?
As the most extreme form of violence, femicides pose a threat to the safety of women around the world. Although they occur in different contexts, as a result of an intimate partner violence and domestic violence, sexual violence, armed conflict, or for the purpose of so-called preserving family honor (“honor murder”), the main causes are still to be found in the unequal distribution of power between men and women, and deep-rooted patriarchal values, even in developed countries.
SMEs and startups with their contribution to national economies, particularly in developing countries, have a major role as job creators and accelerators in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
Inspired by the work of some of the other Labs, the UNDP country office in North Macedonia believed that one way to further our understanding of the complex issue that is the informal sector is to bring a diverse group of people that have worked on the topic for a joint learning session in an environment where they can contribute their views, ideas, and experiences and try to mobilize a wide range of information using collaborative technology.
Motivated by the need to accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals and EU accession, while providing a platform that will allow us to tackle the current complex development challenges in our society, we started working on the design of a 20-year National Development Strategy for the Republic of North Macedonia.
Skopje, September 20, 2021 – ReLOaD2 is officially launched as a second phase of the project, whose main goal is strengthening the partnership between the municipalities and the civil society organizations through transparent allocation of the funds intended for project activities that will provide benefit to the local citizens.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a wake-up call for governments on the vulnerability of our economic and social systems, and the ability of the machinery of government to be able to process rapidly changing, cascading impacts into policy, programmes, financing decisions and continuous feedback and review.
