INNOVATION CHALLENGE: INCREASING THE MEANINGFUL PARTICIPATION OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES AND OLDER PEOPLE IN HUMANITARIAN ACTION

Offered by Elrha as part of Humanitarian Innovation Fund

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.
