Shaping the future: Our strategy for research and innovation in humanitarian response.

A global organisation that finds solutions to complex humanitarian problems through research and innovation..
Our purpose is clear: we work in partnership with a global community of humanitarian actors, researchers and innovators to improve the quality of humanitarian action and deliver better outcomes for people affected by crises.
We empower the humanitarian community. Find out how we can support you...

We are pleased to announce five new additions to our portfolio of innovation projects, which will contribute to our aim of improving outcomes for people affected by humanitarian crises by exploring more effective, innovative and scalable solutions.

These projects came out of our Taking a local perspective on measuring the impact of gender-based violence (GBV) programming funding call, which we created with the aim of generating new context-based perspectives and insights to inform and progress the global agenda on measuring the impact of GBV programming in emergencies.

This was the second of three calls from our Humanitarian Innovation Fund programme designed to foster the improvement in the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of GBV in emergency programmes. The first call was announced in 2017 and supported projects working on M&E collection methods, while a third funding call will be announced in May 2019.

The successful projects approached this issue in many different ways – from assessing current practices, to arranging the collaboration of frontline actors to define and address field-level challenges.
