Digital agency Brandwidth has been appointed by The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Brandwidth will be helping to develop solutions to challenges aligned to the 2030 Agenda and the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, through the use and application of new technologies, innovation practices and product development.

It will look to harness emerging technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality and machine learning.

The focus of the partnership will be on the UNDP’s Acceleration Lab, which uses technology as a means to help solve and scale solutions to complex development challenges.

Jason Jones, CEO, Brandwidth, said: “Our team are focused on the creation of new ideas that drive technological and societal advancement, to enable a sustainable future for us all.

"It’s a humbling experience to work with the UNDP and we’re delighted to have built such a strong partnership with them, supporting their mission for global achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.”

London-based Brandwidth has previously worked with the likes of Toyota, Nokia and Royal Caribbean International.
