AIDF Report: Solutions That Are Saving Lives in Humanitarian Response

May 20, 2015

As record numbers of people are displaced by disaster and conflict, the humanitarian community faces increasing challenges. In addition, population-increase and the impacts of climate change are intensifying the risk of wider humanitarian crises, such as food and water insecurity. Emerging innovations in humanitarian aid can help us mitigate these growing problems. We have been researching the top solutions that are saving lives in over 100 countries and hundreds more have been submitted by you on our recent online survey.

Science and technology have the potential to dramatically improve humanitarian aid and disaster response - the solutions researched and recommended to us span from wearable technology and 3D printing to sustainable innovations in basic sanitation, shelter and nutrition.AIDF received over 320 solutions from NGOs, local governments, UN agencies and the private sector working in 58 different countries, and welcome you to share your suggestions with them. AIDF hopes this report will inspire new solutions to improve humanitarian aid delivery and shape brighter future outcomes. It presents just some of the technologies and services at the forefront of sustainable humanitarian aid, researched and recommended to AIDF by the contributors: http://www.aidforum.org/disaster-relief/top-solutions-that-are-saving-li...
