In this episode, we cover behavioral insights and how UNDP Yemen is implementing this methodology in the context of their programming to Prevent Violent Extremism. We dive into stories of how UNDP Yemen, together with Nudge Lebanon, employed “nudges” to increase participation in workshops designed to overcome trauma and manage conflict.
While technology can be seen as a force that isolates us, it can also be what brings us together. What is Civic Tech and how can it help break down barriers between citizens and their governments? Through stories from Palestine and Tunisia we explore how technology can improve relationships and serve as a bridge between citizens and their governments. Two participants in UNDP’s regional Youth Leadership Programme, demonstrate how the use of Facebook bots and the development of applications can create new ways of civic engagement, interaction, and government responsiveness.

How can design thinking help address what the UN has called the worst cholera outbreak in recorded history? In Yemen, a country where two thirds of the population do not have access to clean water, the UNDP Country Office supported a team of local innovators through UNDP’s regional Youth Leadership Programme to address this challenge. By using a design thinking approach, the needs and concerns of users were put front and center throughout the research and development process. The team, proceeding by trial and error, ultimately developed an affordable water filter for all.We all have a colour that inspires and motivates us... What is yours?
