ELRHA GLOBAL PRIORITIZATION EXERCISE FOR HUMANITARIAN RESEARCH AND INNOVATION – PHASE ONE: MAPPING

Desk-Based 2017

A DIVERSE GEG CONSORTIUM MAPPED OVER 600 OUTPUTS RELATED TO HUMANITARIAN INNOVATION AND RESEARCH AS PART OF THE ELRHA GPE INITIATIVE

Background: In response to the challenge articulated at the World Humanitarian Summit to ‘harness the transformative powers of science and technology’ for improved humanitarian outcomes, Elrha initiated a unique global effort, the Global Prioritization Exercise for Humanitarian Research and Innovation (GPE), to map research and innovation capacities and identify clear priorities for improving humanitarian action. The three key phases of work are to be undertaken as follows: Phase One: Global Mapping (conducted in 2017), Phase Two: Global Consultation, and Phase Three: Synthesis and Analysis.

Requirement: A strong, diverse research team to implement a replicable mapping exercise of recent research and innovation outputs across the world within the humanitarian space.

GEG Contribution: GEG assembled a diverse consortium for the GPE Phase One Mapping piece of work, consisting of humanitarian professionals from the University of Virginia, the Amani Institute and Integrated Risk Management Associates (IRMA), as well as several independent consultants. The GEG Consortium completed the exercise in June of 2017, mapping over 600 humanitarian research and innovation outputs. Individual requests for access to and analysis of this unique data set is available upon request.
