Access to Modern Energy is increasingly recognized as an area of humanitarian concern. If communities affected by crises go without proper access to energy, it becomes impossible for them to meet the basic needs of life. In fact, if humanitarian organisations do not adequately address access to energy in their programmes, they risk contributing to the very same problems they aim to solve.
To continue inspiring our readers, we will increasingly be sharing our coalitions stories about projects that serve as excellent examples of humanitarian innovation in action. In particular, we will be spotlighting projects that have collaborated with different partners to fulfill their desired impact. If you want a project to be spotlighted within the coalition, get in touch!
DCHI is very excited to announce that we will be hosting regular Focal Point Café meetings in 2020 as our newest networking opportunity within the Humanitarian Innovation Sector! We will host regular meet-ups that will offer the perfect opportunity to network in a casual-setting, whilst having the opportunity to hear about humanitarian innovation cases and relevant themes, as well as exploring best practices and lessons learnt from various organisations.
TeamUp is an intervention developed by Save the Children, UNICEF and War Child to meet the urgent psychosocial needs of refugee children. Following the successful pilots and growing interest from country offices, other organisations and donors, TeamUp is now ready to scale as a global intervention. DCHI was approached in order to facilitate the scaling strategy, supporting in making decisions and documenting the plan of action. DCHI has focused on defining the ambition, describing the different approaches to scale and aligning the different visions and ideas within the coalition.
