While there is a relatively well-developed innovation ecosystem within Jordan and Amman, the Jordan RIL is focused on bringing all the actors together to focus on finding solutions for challenges, not challenges for solutions, in the humanitarian context.
The Jordan RIL acts as sectoral innovation capacity within the country and supports any actor working within the humanitarian space. The RIL Jordan works alongside existing humanitarian innovation initiatives like Shamal Start, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) Innovation Lab, and the MercyCorps Innovation initiative.
We are currently running the Matchmaker program which helps people with humanitarian challenges find local or global innovations to solve these problems. The RIL has been working with local and International NGOs, the private sector, and government to support them to identify their most critical humanitarian challenges and find appropriate and tested solutions for them. Submit a challenge through the online Matchmaker portal https://responseinnovationlab.com/matchmaker/
