The Response Innovation Lab’s role is innovation on the ground in humanitarian contexts – real time solving of problems in large-scale humanitarian emergencies and protracted crises such as earthquakes, typhoons, civil war and unrest. Similar to business, there are problems, both simple and complex, that are often only visible on the ground.

Our aim is to complement the traditional humanitarian system by adapting interventions and methods of humanitarian operations to more effectively meet the needs of populations affected by crisis. The RIL develops, tests and rolls out proven concepts that overcome context-specific problems or barriers to aid delivery and community recovery. On the ground amongst humanitarian agencies, innovations will work toward reducing the suffering of those affected by crisis and help communities to recover faster and build back better.

One of our core services is the MatchMaker. It aims to connect challenge holders in the humanitarian sector with tested innovations.

Currently, the MatchMaker is available to any organization open to solving challenges in a new and innovative way in the five countries where RIL is operational: Iraq, Jordan, Puerto Rico, Somalia, and Uganda. Users of the service can be humanitarian organisations, government ministries, private sector, CBOs, social enterprises or any organization that is interested to use new solutions to solve humanitarian challenges.

With is video RIL wants to ease the understanding of the MatchMaker service and attract organizations to use the service.
