Humanitarian innovation

Innovation matters – of course.  But sometimes it can really be a life or death issue, and that’s very much the case in the humanitarian sector.  When disasters – natural or man-made – strike there’s a need for some pretty fast creative problem solving.   There’s growing interest in the field of humanitarian innovation and we’ve been working with the UK’s Department for International development trying to map how the innovation ecosystem works in this space.  We recently completed a literature review on the theme (click here for a copy) and we’re now working on some case studies which I’ll post soon.  Meanwhile there are some fascinating examples on the ALNAP website – click here for more.
