unit at UNICEF has been a driving force behind many successful
initiatives. Like in most innovations, the majority of those remain as
concepts or as pilots that are required to be learned to minimize chance
of repetition and of error. At the same time, there are a few
innovations that are successful and have been brought to scale. These
should be shared and learned with the intention of further sustaining
them and possibly even to take successful innovations to new locations
and adjust to other programmes. In order to facilitate this learning,

inventory for innovation and T4D projects, it helps focus investments in
innovation in line with the organization strategic priorities. INVENT
includes innovations of all types: physical product, programming,
frugal, innovative financing, data, and digital. INVENT enhances the
global visibility of innovative country and regional projects, with the
aim of identifying initiatives that have the potential for multi-country
and global scale. UNICEF Tanzania has already submitted its catalogue
of innovations to INVENT, but some require regular update and there are
new interventions that should be catalogued.

support programmes. Real time data collection efforts are continuous
and, to name only a few, WASH, C4D, U-Report and COVID-19 Resource
