To empower humanitarian organisations DCHI hosts and facilitates Humanitarian Accelerator Programmes for its coalition. The process of scaling from ideation to pilot, from the challenge brief to enagement workshops.
A proven three-step model WANT – FIND – GET
DCHI’s innovation experts ensure the process followed in the Humanitarian Accelerator Programmes will finally frame the discussion around the potential for innovation of the specific projects. Using the Open Innovation and Design Thinking guidelines, these programmes are awarded specifically for their innovative quality, their potential impact and sustainability, their consortium, and the considerations given to the project management. Therefore this model based on the ‘want find get manage’ (WFGM) model, is applicable to organisations and companies of all sizes and industries, and has already been examined and documented in past research. For DCHI ant it’s actors it is being used as the foundation and will be modified and expanded with additional detail and other models.
Living with Floods
DCHI and The Netherlands Red Cross (NLRC) invite businesses of all sizes in the private sector, knowledge institutes & (local) government organisations to join forces on this challenge: Manage serious water risk and living with floods (in Mozambique). Following the principles of Open Innovation it aims to create significant impact for the communities in Mozambique, but only if we partner up and take action together.
