Our Scope

Public Policy Innovation 

At SDG Innovation Lab we use unconventional approaches to tackle persistent development problems or improve solutions that already exist with the goal of “leaving no one behind”. The SDG Lab runs experiments to provide evidence-based recommendations to the government on what would work versus not work in Armenia, thereby stimulating the introduction of impactful interventions to development issues. 

Innovative Financing   

Our Lab helps to explore opportunities that can help mobilise new funding sources for development (such as Crowdfunding or Diaspora Bonds) to meet the SDGs. We design and test new instruments capable of engaging public and private capital in the drive to overcome the funding gap for development activities. The Lab provides a framework to facilitate the implementation of such instruments. 

Our Services

Innovation at its best

Behavioral Experimentation

Psychological, social, cultural factors can drive individual decisions. Through small, subtle interventions – or nudges- that influence behavior in a way that benefit individual and public. 

Data Science

We harness data for sustainable development, whether it be creating a tool to conduct sentiment analysis on Armenia’s tourist services; developing an integrated digital solution for agriculture; or building a platform, which will help students make better-informed decisions and plan their career journeys.

Learning and Development

At the SDG Lab we demonstrate the value of experimentation to public servants and build knowledge of our adopted methods and approaches through full-fledged and hands-on workshops.
