The UN Innovation Toolkit

"Innovating at the UN means doing different things and doing things differently."

– António Guterres, UN Secretary-General

Developed by the UN, for the UN, the UN Innovation Toolkit includes twenty-one tools, step-by-step directions, worksheets, case studies, references as well as a self-assessment which provides a diagnosis on every user’s innovation strengths and areas for improvement.

Upon request of the UN Secretary-General, the UN Innovation Toolkit was developed under the leadership of the UN System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB) in close collaboration with the UN Innovation Network and innovators from 30+ UN Entities.

The toolkit has been entrusted to UN System Staff College (UNSSC) to ensure dissemination and integration into relevant capacity building and innovation efforts.
