UNDP commissioned the Algorand Foundation to develop a training curriculum on web3 for its global staff. More than 22,000 employees from UNDP and other United Nations organizations will benefit from the Algorand Blockchain Academy. The curriculum will focus on practical applications of Blockchain technology in the field of sustainable development. Robert Pasicko, a UNDP research and data analyst specializing in alternative finance and low-carbon development, announced the initiative at the Algorand Impact Summit in New Delhi. The beta version of the course is planned to launch in the first quarter of 2024 and be gradually rolled out among UNDP’s global staff throughout the year.

Algorand is improving in adoption
The Algorand Blockchain Academy reflects the UN’s ongoing commitment to adopting web3 technologies. This strategic partnership highlights Blockchain’s potential to address global challenges and underlines the UN’s commitment to developing the workforce for a sustainable future. As the course progresses, UNDP practitioners worldwide are expected to gain valuable expertise in using Blockchain technology to tackle complex global problems.
The project is creating waves in India
On the other hand, Algorand announced a series of partnerships with important Indian organizations. Algorand’s collaboration with the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM), a major technology advocacy group in India, is at the forefront of these efforts. This partnership aims to develop Web3 capabilities under NASSCOM’s FutureSkills Prime, a digital upskilling initiative developed with academia, IT industry and government. ALGO has joined forces with TiE Bangalore, an organization that supports global entrepreneurship, and Mann Deshi Foundation, India’s first women-centric bank. These collaborations will deepen Algorand’s impact in the Indian market and contribute to the broader Web3 landscape.
