System Innovation Workshop in Zambia

Natalya Pyagay • 13 January 2018

The SDG Philanthropy Platform and the UN in Zambia hosted a Systems Innovation Workshop for Catalytic Funding. The objective of the workshop was to use the systems analysis to collectively identify innovation opportunities which can lead to transformative solutions in addressing the well-being of children and related SDGs. The workshop was also aimed at defining principles/guidelines and criteria to be applied in administering catalytic funding, with an assumption that others will use them to leverage own programming. The workshop brought together over 30 high level participants from the government, social enterprises, businesses, innovators, faith-based organizations and NGO's. The workshop was facilitated by Mr. Banny Banerjee, Director of ChangeLabs at Stanford University.
