Coalition – July 5th, 2018
We’re proud to announce the first DCHI award for the Best Humanitarian Innovation in collaboration with The Spindle. We are looking for life-saving or life-improving innovations regarding data or digitalization for the humanitarian sector.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for life-saving or life-improving innovations to help the most vulnerable people impacted by humanitarian or natural crises. Innovations that engage the private sector and/or involve input from affected communities using data in order to provide, supply, or locally generate clean water and sanitation, energy, life-saving information, or health supplies and services to help people affected. This therefore means that we are specifically looking for initiatives that will make humanitarian aid more effective and efficient using data and/or digitization.
Innovations, projects, solutions, approaches are required to have passed the first test pilot phase stage. This means that initiatives have to be proven effective either in the humanitarian sector or another sector and are transferrable. We want to see pilots and innovations that can scale. Are you, or do you know someone who works on such an initiative? Please spread the word and apply!
