We are looking for innovative mechanisms to increase the meaningful participation of people with disabilities and older people in humanitarian action, and innovative ways of assessing the effectiveness of these mechanisms.
Projects will be at the Invention or Adaptation stage of humanitarian innovation. Projects at the Invention stage will generate ideas and develop a prototype for early-stage testing. Those at the Adaptation stage will match an existing solution to a new problem and context.
|Stage||Stage 1: Ideation and Stage 2: Research & Development|
|Region||Africa, Asia and Pacific, Europe and Eurasia, Latin America / Caribbean, North America, Middle East and North Africa and Low and Middle Income Countries|
|Focus Areas||Disaster Risk Reduction (Humanitarian Assistance)|
We welcome applications from any legally registered entity (eg, civil society organisation – including representative organisations, international non-governmental organisation, national non-governmental organisation, academic/research institution, government, private company, Red Cross/Red Crescent movement, United Nations agency or programme).
Applications must consist of a partnership with at least one operational humanitarian organisation and at least one organisation for persons with disabilities (OPD) or older people’s association (OPA) working in the place of implementation (either can be the lead applicant).
