Creating Hope in Conflict: A Humanitarian Grand Challenge is seek life-saving or life-improving innovations to help the most vulnerable and hardest-to-reach people impacted by humanitarian crises caused by conflict. These innovations will involve a connection to the private sector and input from people affected by humanitarian crisis in order to provide safe drinking water, sanitation, energy, lifesaving information, or health supplies and services to help conflict-affected people.
The Humanitarian Grand Challenge is focused on addressing the most acute needs in conflict-affected areas that have the potential to be solved by innovation in one or more of the following four areas: (1) safe water and sanitation; (2) energy; (3) life-saving information; and/or (4) health supplies and services. Innovations must enable local solutions, serve local needs and delivery gaps, overcome common delivery barriers in conflict settings, or improve on the timeliness and cost efficiency of current humanitarian delivery methods. We also welcome innovations that help to maintain services and infrastructure, avoiding further deterioration.
Proposed innovations should clearly describe the problem they have identified, the underlying causes of the specific problem, and how the identified innovation will address one or more of the causes. Innovations in processes or approaches (e.g. adapting a private sector approach to the humanitarian context) are particularly welcome.
