We are Elrha, a force for change in the humanitarian community. The research and innovation we support equips the humanitarian community with the knowledge of what works, so people affected by crises get the right help when they need it most.
Our purpose is clear: to empower the humanitarian community to improve humanitarian response. We make this happen by supporting and championing the outcomes of robust research and proven innovations.
We empower the humanitarian community. Find out how we can support you...

WHAT IS THE HUMANITARIAN NEED?

The humanitarian innovation ecosystem is immature. Innovation often occurs within agencies, is rarely supported in the early days of a response, and is not scaled up or scaled out. This project will address the lack of a standardised process for innovation during an emergency response by embedding it as an activity during the response and providing a shared space that enables demand-led change at field level while the response is ongoing.

WHAT IS THE INNOVATIVE SOLUTION?

To develop a CRIL that will be a transformative catalyst that substantially improves humanitarian responses through

  1. the development and delivery of effective new products, processes, services and models;
  2. the creation of meaningful partnerships;
  3. the enhancement of evidence, learning and capacity building focused on innovation.

WHAT ARE THE EXPECTED OUTCOMES?

  • Increased humanitarian effectiveness through the development of more innovative products, services, and processes.
  • A CRIL that is ready to deploy during a level 3 response with services such as mentoring and funding access, events and training, marketplace of previous innovation successes, innovation resources and tools, evidence support, creative space focused on emergency innovation, and innovation surge capacity.
