As a new partnership works to identify its goals, consider uniting specialist knowledge with corporate support to create an “innovations lab” that can generate proposals for pilot projects. The “innovations lab” concept is a way to generate pilot proposals that meet the needs of many different stakeholders. Recruit specialists from relevant disciplines as well as industry leaders to co-create proposals for pilot projects. The partnership can then move forward with selecting projects to pilot in accordance with the Natural Resources Risk and Action Framework Tool 12 and 13.
The UN Global Compact Brazil local network, in partnership with UNESCO and FAO, corporate partners, and a research institute with an agricultural focus, has launched a 1-year program for companies which will have four phases (or modules), 2 theoretical and 2 practical, as follows:
The “innovations lab” concept will propose pilot projects for the agricultural sector. The partnership is preparing an official start of the program, which will be followed by a 1-year program implementation culminating with the launch of the pilot projects that were developed in the innovation lab. These pilot projects will be compiled into a publication and launched at an event. The long-term objective, for a later stage, is the implementation of pilot projects with Brazilian companies. Furthermore, the project team hopes to replicate this approach with additional sectors in addition to the agricultural sector.
