AIDF release the 2017 guide “Solutions That Save Lives & Support Development” looking into the technologies, products and services that are making an impact on humanitarian aid, international development and disaster relief.
Modern science and technology transformed how the humanitarian community addresses current and emerging challenges. Disaster response and preparedness, emergency procurement, agricultural productivity as well as health & WASH practices are more effective thanks to innovative solutions aimed to support vulnerable populations and progress towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
As part of the third annual edition of the guide to “Solutions That Save Lives & Support Development”, Aid and International Development Forum (AIDF) has researched cutting-edge technologies, products and services that are making an impact on humanitarian aid, international development and disaster relief.
This year’s survey resulted in over 300 nominated solutions suggested by aid agencies, NGOs, United Nations and the private sector companies across the world. The 2017 edition of the guide offers a list of the most innovative solutions from mobile applications and data management tools to portable water purification treatments, solar powered energy supply and sustainable building materials for emergency shelter. The guide also includes innovations in emergency management, procurement and sourcing of essential aid supplies, healthcare equipment and medical devices, agriculture and education.
