The Humanitarian Innovation Guide is a growing online resource to help individuals and organisations define humanitarian problems and successfully develop innovative solutions.
The Guide is written with two audiences in mind: humanitarian practitioners who are seeking to develop a new approach to their work and want to apply an innovation lens to solving problems; and social entrepreneurs from outside the sector who have identified an opportunity to engage with the sector and need a humanitarian framework to contextualise their innovation plans.
The authors also hope that it will be a useful resource for innovation managers who are tasked with supporting innovation in their agencies, labs or networks. As the first step-by-step guide to managing innovation in the humanitarian sector, the authors hope that its continued development will better enable individuals, organisations and the wider sector to:
- Plan the activities involved in an innovation process and systematise the management of innovation.
- Manage a successful innovation project and generate evidence for innovation.
- Ensure that innovations are developed in an ethical way, with full consideration of risks and responsibilities.
