Humanitarian Accelerator Programme – September 8th, 2020
In a few weeks time our board member, The Netherlands Red Cross (NLRC) together with DCHI, will be launching the Living with Floods challenge. This challenge will follow the principles of Open innovation and aims to tap into the brightest minds and expertise available to solve pressing humanitarian needs. While the main theme relates to a water risk, the specific challenge question and its geographical focus will be revealed in the next couple of weeks. NLRC’s aim is to design and carry out an innovative pilot in 2021 together with strategic partners, and with the potential to scale to other geographical areas.
We invite the private sector, knowledge institutes & (local) government organizations to join forces with NLRC on this challenge: are you curious to learn more about Living with Floods? Then stay tuned to the DCHI website and/or newsletter next month!
