UNDP and Algorand Foundation to Launch Blockchain Academy in Q1 of 2024

The United Nations Development Programme together with the Algorand Foundation are set to launch a blockchain academy in the first quarter of 2024. The objective of the academy is to provide the UNDP's employees “with knowledge and insights into the applications of blockchain technology.”


Course Material to Be Made Available to Staff Members of Other UN Agencies


The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) recently announced that it will launch the Algorand Blockchain Academy in 2024. The academy aims to provide the UNDP's 22,000-plus employees “with knowledge and insights into the applications of blockchain technology.”


Robert Pasicko, the agency's expert for alternative finance and low-carbon development, said that the academy will offer a curriculum that is comprised of “recorded lectures, interactive workshops, and hands-on assignments.” The course will also be available to staff members of other UN agencies.


Remarking on the academy's potential role in helping to bring UNDP workers up to speed with modern technologies, Pasicko said:


“The Algorand Blockchain Academy will be instrumental in equipping our team with the tools needed to address complex global challenges using blockchain technology.”



Using Blockchain to Achieve Sustainable Development Goals


Doro Unger-Lee, the head of education and inclusion at Algorand Foundation, stated that his organization considers the education initiative as an important first step “toward identifying and delivering actionable” blockchain solutions. Lee added that these solutions can potentially help the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) “achieve the sustainable development goals [SDGs] in a number of areas.”


According to the press statement, the academy's initial phase or beta iteration is set to begin in the first quarter of the coming year. Some of the focus areas of the academy's course include the use of blockchain in narrowing the financial exclusion gap, supply chain transparency, real-world asset tokenization, and universal digital identity solutions.
