UPDATES FROM UDHVABANI LAB BANGLADESH

I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.

The Disasters and Emergencies Preparedness Programme (DEPP) Innovation Labs aims to identify and fund innovative solutions to disaster preparedness through a network of labs based around the world in countries prone to disaster. The labs operate primarily from a ‘bottom up’ perspective, identifying areas of innovation which come directly from disaster affected communities and the organizations working closely with them. The program aims to promote cross-sector partnerships with a range of private sector, research, civil society and/or government organizations and create new opportunities for learning and collaboration and potential avenues to scale emerging areas of innovation.

 

Labs have been set up in countries prone to disaster, in Bangladesh, Jordan, Kenya, and the Philippines. Each lab is embedded in vulnerable communities to ensure that a user-centered design process creates solutions that work for local communities. Check out the Lab's Facebook page for regular updates.
