The United States Agency for International Development’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID), with support from Grand Challenges Canada, have launched Creating Hope in Conflict: A Humanitarian Grand Challenge. This challenge seeks to fund and accelerate solutions that enable life-saving or life-improving assistance to reach the most vulnerable and hardest-to-reach people in conflict-generated humanitarian crises.

Specifically, we seek innovations engage the private sector and involve input from the affected communities in order to provide, supply or locally generate safe water and sanitation, energy, lifesaving information, or health supplies and services to help conflict-affected people.
