Innovations for Resilience Convening

Key takeaways and implications for Innovative Frontiers for Resilience Development

The objective of the ‘Innovations for Resilience Convening,’ held in Munich on November 20 – 21st, was to collectively contribute to Agenda 2030 by exploring sustainable innovations that build resilience and enhance development outcomes, across both public and private sector partners.

The convening was co-hosted by the Global Resilience Partnership (GRP), World Food Programme (WFP), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and One Billion Coalition for Resilience (1BC) — a joint initiative of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), WFP, UN Connecting Business initiative, UNICEF, and other partners.

The convening brought together GRP’s and UNDP’s thought leadership on resilience and portfolio of innovations; WFP’s operational knowledge, in-house innovation and country office experiences; 1BC’s wider range of examples to
showcase resilience-building innovations, and the diverse range of experience of the invited private sector counterparts to provide key insights on scaling, exit strategies and innovation.
