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...

Since joining our team in 2020, Ruth has led on the WASH and scaling innovation areas of work within our HIF programme. She now manages the development of our work across the WASH, gender-based violence (GBV) and disability and older age inclusion areas of work.

For the past ten years, Ruth has been working across the development and humanitarian sectors to understand how research and innovation can improve outcomes for those affected by crisis. Before joining us, Ruth worked for a non-profit consultancy designing and scaling innovative financing programmes in the WASH, health and education sectors across East and West Africa. She has also worked in monitoring and evaluation and research roles for non-profit, public and private sector actors, and provided technical assistance to the government of Sierra Leone for two years.

Ruth is interested in how bringing together actors from different disciplines and perspectives can enable solutions to complex problems in the humanitarian sector that have until now remained unsolved.
