Dear friends, partners and supporters of the CDAC Network

We would like to invite you to our public event, Accidental and intentional humanitarian innovation: valuing what’s there on 7 May 2019 in London starting at 1400hrs, ending at 1830hrs (including a drinks reception).

Humanitarian innovation, a growing area of practice, is effecting rapid change in the design and delivery of services. It is unearthing new challenges and risks in the ways people affected by disasters interact with aid providers. A stronger focus on involving the end user is giving rise to more collective, equitable and collaborative approaches to aid across disciplines.

At this event, the CDAC Network will bring together humanitarian innovators, business leaders and civil society pioneers to discuss how humanitarian innovations can enable community-led solutions to the challenges they face.

The event will be comprised of the following two sessions:

Session 1: Humanitarian technology: Prioritising the human in human-centred design

Session 2: Innovation takes time, people in disasters can’t wait: backing the user-innovator

A background document will be available on www.cdacnetwork.org by mid-April. For the full agenda, with names of speakers, please visit: http://www.cdacnetwork.org/i/20190405120839-irm2s/

When: Tuesday 7 May 2019, 1400hrs-1830hrs

Where: The Auditorium, Thomson Reuters Foundation, 30 South Colonnade, Canary Wharf, London E14 5HX

We look forward to welcoming you to this event. Only those who register will be able to attend. The deadline for registration is 26 April 2019.
