Innovation Labs

UNICEF Innovation Lab

Beirut, Lebanon |

The Lebanon Innovation Lab is working to develop key technologies, including:

– Equitrack, which is based on open-source software and can be replicated in other offices. This tool enables UNICEF to have all partnership-related information in one repository, to map partnerships, and to aggregate planned results, progress and budgets;

– Data collection using tablets and smart phones to enhance rapid data entry and analysis for quick action;

– ActivityInfo, an online real-time reporting tool for partners; Open Data Kit and Formhub, which are both open source platforms for collecting data in the field using smart phones and tablets; and RapidSMS, a framework for real time SMS based monitoring systems such as U-report.

(Primary focus: Technology development, Partnership development.)
