1.0 Organizational Context

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.

The Response Innovation Lab (RIL) is an interagency global partnership, whose original founding members include World Vision, Oxfam, Save the Children, Civic George Washington University that operates in Iraq, Jordan, Uganda, Puerto Rico, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen. The RIL is hosted under the SomReP consortium (lead by World Vision) in Somalia.
