The DCHI Humanitarian Innovation Award rewards the best innovative concepts in the field of humanitarian aid. In collaboration with The Spindle, DCHI (Dutch Coalition for Humanitarian Innovation) welcomes innovative applications from all over the world and from all types of actors and organisations. Will you win the DCHI Award for ‘Best Humanitarian Innovation’ 2018? Apply before July 31st 2018!

What are we looking for?
We are looking for life-saving or life-improving innovations to help the most vulnerable people impacted by humanitarian or natural crises. Innovations that engage the private sector and/or involve input from affected communities using data in order to provide, supply, or locally generate clean water and sanitation, energy, life-saving information, or health supplies and services to help people affected. This therefore means that we are specifically looking for initiatives that will make humanitarian aid more effective and efficient using data and/or digitization.

Innovations, projects, solutions, approaches are required to have passed the first test pilot phase stage. This means that initiatives have to be proven effective either in the humanitarian sector or another sector and are transferrable. We want to see pilots and innovations that can scale. Are you, or do you know someone who works on such an initiative? Please spread the word and apply!
