The SDG 16 innovation competition focuses on seven thematic areas (or research questions). The program design is focused on human-centered activities which will focus on engaging participants actively to foster a more holistic understanding of issues around accountability, rule of law and access to justice. Each focus group will focus on a specific problem area:

  • How can they make sure the most vulnerable people in Nigeria are included in the process of development?
  • How can they re-design the justice system to serve the poor?
  • How can they rethink citizen feedback mechanisms to improve service delivery?
  • How can young people enhance corporate and government accountability?
  • How can they increase women’s participation in governance?
  • How can they make sure everyone is included in conversations about the future of Nigeria?
  • How can they support the voices of women in the rule of law?

The top 40 ideas will be invited to a 3 day workshop in Abuja and Lagos respectively to further refine their concepts. The culmination of the campaign will be a pitch competition in front of a panel of judges, from which they will chose 2 winning ideas. The winners will be eligible to further develop their ideas within Accountability Lab incubator; and possible financing from external partners.
