Accelerator Labs in the Pacific and Caribbean are core to UNDP's mission to support SIDS in their transformational development pathways.

The Caribbean "Blue" Accelerator Lab focuses on supporting Small Island Developing States in the sustainable development of their Blue Economies.

In August the UNDP Pacific Office in Fiji launched its first-ever Accelerator Lab for the Pacific region. Accelerator Labs represent UNDP's new way of thinking and strategy about development and advocating bolder innovation.

UNDP's Accelerator Labs work on frontier development challenges including climate action and climate migration, coastal zone, and oceans management, waste management, digitalization of government and the economy.
