Populations affected by crises are experts in their own lives and circumstances. Their varied and valuable contributions must be heard and incorporated into innovation and research agendas.
People’s needs should be the driver for innovation. But too often the thoughts and ideas of those directly affected by crisis are marginalised and not factored into key decision-making processes. Innovation and research divorced from specific needs runs the risk of being ineffective, inappropriate – even harmful – and a waste of scarce resource.
We build strategic partnerships with networks that are connected with populations affected by crises. And we fund innovation and research led by local actors.
We work with local partners and people within a crisis context or country, where possible, to gain their perspectives, insight and expertise. This informs our programmes of work and means our solutions are focused on the most pressing needs.
"Improving outcomes for people affected by crisis is at the heart of our work." - our guiding principle #1
