AIDF Guide to Inspiring Solutions That Save Lives & Support Development - by: AlinaAIDF http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/89-new-publications-books-articles-partner-newsletters-journals-blogs-websites-videos/17718-aidf-guide-to-inspiring-solutions-that-save-lives-a-support-development#17718 http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/89-new-publications-books-articles-partner-newsletters-journals-blogs-websites-videos/17718-aidf-guide-to-inspiring-solutions-that-save-lives-a-support-development#17718
As part of the annual update of the guide to "Solutions That Save Lives & Support Development", the Aid and International Development Forum (AIDF), together with the Technology Exchange Lab, have researched latest technologies and innovations, which can help humanitarian actors to mitigate the future implications of these challenges.

With over 300 solutions nominated by NGOs, local governments, UN agencies and the private sector working in 58 different countries, the guide offers an updated list of cutting-edge technologies and products which support Sustainable Development Goals, aid delivery and disaster relief efforts across the globe.

AIDF would like to thank everyone for their participation in our recent survey and congratulate organisations which made it in the 2016 edition of the guide. The solutions span from earth-imaging satellites and 3D printing to sustainable innovations in basic sanitation, shelter and nutrition.

AIDF hopes this guide will inspire new solutions to improve humanitarian aid delivery and shape brighter future outcomes. To read the 2016 edition of "Solutions That Save Lives & Support Development", please click here www.aidforum.org/disaster-relief/inspiri...lopment-2016-edition

If you are interested in hearing more about these innovations and humanitarian solutions, or you have one to suggest, attending our upcoming AIDF events will provide you with access to our sought-after round table discussions, innovation pitches from selected solution providers and networking opportunities with stakeholders from regional governments, investors, donors, UN agencies, NGOs, research institutes and the private sector.
