WFP’s Innovation Accelerator identifies, supports and scales innovations that help fast-track WFP’s work in emergency humanitarian response and achieving Zero Hunger. In support of this strategic vision, the Accelerator works closely with WFP Country Offices as well as Regional Bureaus and Business Units at headquarters level.
Innovation is become increasingly important and widespread in order to drive and scale innovation further within WFP and the respective countries. Closer to the field, 2020 is marking the establishment of a coordinated WFP Innovation Community to complement the WFP Innovation Accelerator's global activities. The Innovation Community comprises a network of WFP Innovation Hubs, based in WFP Country Offices or in Regional Bureaus, a community of WFP Innovation Champions working together to foster a culture of innovation throughout the organization, and an internal innovation support service to WFP business divisions and Country Offices.
