“Innovations by Nature” and “Urban Safari

UNDP Accelerator Lab is launching a new area – Innovation by Nature. The basic idea is that nature has already solved many of the problems and global challenges we face. Animals, plants and germs are remarkable engineers. 

“Innovations by Nature” is a series of public lectures (15 November), and also an “Urban Safari” (16 November) that aims to find nature-based solutions to address urban problems.
