Humanitarian Action Challenges Live!

Coalition – June 30th, 2018

Today the Challenges for the Humanitarian Action Challenge offered to you by Impact City the Hague are live.

The Humanitarian Action Challenge aims to stimulate cooperation between business (including start-ups) and NGOs in order to develop innovative technological solutions for peace, justice, and humanitarian action.

The challenge consists of 3 specific and separate challenges, each with a challenge owner: Dutch Coalition for Humanitarian Innovation (DCHI), World Food Programme (WFP) and International Organization for Migration (IOM).

DCHI:    How might we empower those affected by humanitarian crisis in the design of innovative humanitarian          solutions, thereby tapping into the great human potential available and increasing the overall impact and effectiveness of humanitarian aid?

IOM:     How can enhanced needs mapping and analysis help to improve capacity and resource planning in providing assistance to displaced populations and migrants?

WFP:     How can WFP make better use of the vast amount of unstructured data to understand the needs of hungry people in the world? How can WFP integrate new tools to improve the way it processes and collects data, thereby allowing it to better listen to the voices of the millions of people living in vulnerable communities to inform its operations?

The deadline for all proposals is Augustus 21st 2018.

We look forward to seeing a great many proposals
