This webinar explores how UNDP Uganda partnered with Jumia, a global e-commerce company, to digitalise informal market vendors. It looks at an example of how COVID triggered a pivot for UNDP programming, how it was taken to scale and how it will inform the development of a regional framework to support scaling.
The story illustrates why, when and how UNDP is (or isn’t) well-suited to help social innovations scale, and what constraints can emerge when working with the private sector to do so. Here, we see the challenging journey to scale from pilot to nationwide platform, and the even rockier struggle to expand lessons learned beyond national borders for regional or global learning.
