Military Humanitarian Innovation

The military has long been the main source of governmental support for humanitarian action.

Military spending is focused not only on the specific purpose of war and conflict but also in ensuring that humanitarian effort always reaches far-flung areas that need support and humanitarian aid.

Miscommunications often lead to suboptimal outcomes. With the Military Humanitarian Innovation, a ‘rebranding’ of the military innovations for civilian use, is necessary. Over the past few years, the project has explored a lot in the area and technologies such as remote sensing, risk management approaches, and networked technologies are used to enhance military capability of addressing humanitarian needs and providing aid.

Hopefully, with the better interplay of knowledge and capability training, this approach can better serve the purpose that it has been created for. The reality of humanitarian efforts become better when real life approaches match theoretical findings.
