We've been on a fascinating journey over the last 18 months, working alongside four ground-breaking innovation labs in Bangladesh, Kenya, Jordan and Philippines. These teams are pioneering inclusive approaches to supporting people affected by disaster to strengthen coping strategies and devise initiatives to reduce risk and suffering by putting local knowledge, skills and resources centre stage.  

These labs are working directly with communities facing recurrent or protracted crises and progressing people in these communities through a comprehensive curriculum to grow and develop ideas into viable solutions for wider benefit. 

One key area of focus for the labs and innovators is scaling solutions. We want to address the obstacles facing innovators in these precarious environments to take their solutions to market and sustain their projects, so we have published a guide with Start Network that explores possible revenue models. 

This practical guide is packed full of useful for information to push for a better quality of participation in humanitarian innovation and to support localised, longer-term outcomes.
