How can we enable and foster humanitarian innovation?
We are the Global Humanitarian Lab (GHL) a partnership of leading humanitarian organisations working to make, incubate, and accelerate innovative solutions that address common problems of affected populations and humanitarian community.
We are a network of networks, a node connected to networks of people and communities, partnerships as well as big and small institutions from the public and private sector, all aiming at fostering innovation in the humanitarian sector, and empowering affected communities. We leverage local and global capacity to create participatory innovation and find solutions using collaborative approaches.

Challenges: Humanitarian innovation can transform the lives of people affected by conflict, complex emergencies and natural disasters. We work in collaboration with entrepreneurial refugees, and humanitarian partners to ensure the challenges and the solutions come from the bottom up. Participation drives our challenges to progress.
How do we inspire makers and solutioneers out of those who need humanitarian aid? The aim of the collective is to get innovation tools and technology in to the hands of those who can design the best solutions. We do this with the global fab lab & maker movements and by taking fab labs to the people. Collaboration is key to long term success.
