    Innovation is the process by which new ideas are developed to respond to societal, environmental and economic needs. By generating new products, services, businesses, organizational models and behavioural changes, innovation speeds up and scales up national efforts to address climate change. It is key to implementing the Paris Agreement and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Historically, small enterprises have played an important role in technological innovation, often leading to the introduction of paradigm-shifting technologies and changes in the way we live.
