Our ambition

The Dutch Coalition for Humanitarian Innovation is comprised of governmental actors, knowledge institutes, academia, businesses, and humanitarian organizations in the Netherlands who develop and scale innovative solutions to increase the impact and reduce the costs of humanitarian action.

Affected communities and their needs as well as the needs of humanitarian organizations providing emergency action are at the centre of the coalition’s activities. The Dutch Coalition for Humanitarian Innovation follows a win-win-win strategy to pursue and achieve results on three levels; a benefit for affected communities in disasters, benefits for the partners of the Dutch Coalition for Humanitarian Innovation, and benefits for the humanitarian sector.

The Dutch Coalition for Humanitarian Innovation is a dynamic movement that leverages the power of resources, expertise and capabilities in the Netherlands to support humanitarian innovation with a global impact. The Coalition is recognized and acknowledged as the driving force in the Netherlands for effective humanitarian innovation.

Masdar, the first version of Nomads, will be rolled out in Athens.
