Human Centered Design: Placing Human in Humanitarian Aid

Share this event

We believe that power needs to shift from top-down development towards communities in charge of their own sustainable impact. Come and join us at our sixth explorative session on Human-Centered Design and Community-Led Development.

In collaboration with Butterfly WorksThe Hunger Projectand The Movement for Community-Led Development, our next session of the Community of Practice on Community-Led Development will be on September 24th from 15:30-17:00h.

What is this session going to be about?

This session will be dedicated to Human-Centered Design and its utility in humanitarian efforts and contexts. We will be led through a case study by Orla Canavan, who has been working on integrating data and human-centered design into humanitarian efforts as part of the Dutch Red Cross’ 510 project.

Over the last 2 years a group of staff and many professional volunteers have been implementing Human-Centered Design methods to improve the digital interfaces and processes with both people affected by, and aid workers who focus on, natural and human-made disasters. This session will show the common processes and challenges as well as the simple but effective digital design solutions humans within and around the Red Cross movement have shared to create products for Early Warning Early Action systems, Cash Based Aid and Information as Aid across St. Maarten, Ukraine, Malawi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Philippines and the Netherlands among others.
