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...

When a disaster occurs, humanitarian agencies frequently carry out independent assessment activities resulting in delays and inefficiencies. And all too often, they fail to sufficiently engage local communities. The DIGITAL PH project (Digitized Community Disaster Risk Mapping and Information for Efficient Humanitarian Response and Development Programming in the Philippines) builds on a comprehensive mapping of 176 communities during the three-year Haiyan recovery and rehabilitation program, to digitise and make available validated and up-to-date information on community demographics, vulnerabilities and capacities, and other vital information for future response.
The innovation aims to put communities first, by empowering them to maintain this information in an online database, and to use it in the event of an emergency to assess needs, and respond appropriately. The platform will also be opened up to other responders.
More information coming soon.
