Too tough to scale? Challenges to scaling innovation in the humanitarian sector
Despite increased investment in the area, scaling humanitarian innovation is still a big and ongoing challenge. In our latest report Too tough to scale? Challenges to scaling innovation in the humanitarian sector we explore why more innovations aren’t successfully scaling and identify key barriers.
Drawing from Elrha’s own experience in funding over 150 humanitarian organisations to develop, test and scale many highly impactful innovations, and drawing on research and experience from the social and development sectors, Too tough to scale? identifies 13 key barriers across five different challenge areas.
The report goes on to provide clear calls to action for different humanitarian actors and encourages those groups to contribute to sector-wide transformative change.
