The Dutch Relief Alliance brings Dutch NGOs to the forefront of innovation for humanitarian action. Current approaches to innovation often fail to achieve impact at scale due to a lack of resources for research and development, the development of solutions in isolation and missed chances to share successes. To tackle these challenges, the Innovation Working Group within the DRA stimulates innovation and continuous learning across organisational structures through:
1) setting up the DRA Innovation Fund and develop calls for proposals for humanitarian innovation projects
2) mentor the granted innovation projects
3) stimulate local humanitarian innovation within the Joint Responses
4) disseminate all innovation learnings from the innovation projects and the Joint Responses within and outside the DRA
