HIP2015 - Conference Overview

The Humanitarian Innovation Project hosted the 2015 Humanitarian Innovation Conference in Oxford on 17 & 18 July, in partnership with the World Humanitarian Summit.

“The humanitarian system is at a crossroads. With growing needs and finite resources, creative solutions are urgently needed. The skills, talents, and aspirations of crisis affected communities themselves offer a neglected resource for making responses more sustainable.”
