Jennifer Colville

UNDP's Innovation portfolio for the Arab States region

Jennifer manages UNDP's Innovation portfolio for the Arab States region, covering 18 countries from the Gulf to the Maghreb.  She manages regional activities to introduce new and alternative approaches to development, such as big data for development, games for social change, behavioural insights, and innovative forms of financing for development.  She supports colleagues and partners in a continuous scanning of the horizon for fresh thinking to reframe development challenges, prototyping to quickly and inexpensively figure out what works and what does not, and "working out loud" to share successes and hard-won lessons learned.  Prior to this position, Jennifer was an international development policy and programme advisor in UNDP Headquarters, with experience in capacity development and institutional effectiveness. Before joining the UN system, Jennifer worked for many years in the private sector as a management consultant with Accenture and Burson-Marsteller. Jennifer earned her Masters of Business Administration from Kellogg School of Management (Northwestern University) and her Bachelor of Arts from Yale University.
