The Resilience Innovation Lab is an interagency partnership which seeks to create and apply effective innovation to enhance the impact of humanitarian and development investments and interventions designed to improve the resilience of populations in Somalia. The RIL aims to provide a supportive and safe environment to create new and existing innovation for application at scale for enhanced resilience.

The Somalia RIL is an exciting collaboration hosted by the SomReP which is a consortium of seven NGOs – World Vision, Action Hunger, ADRA, Care, COOPI, Danish Refugee Council and Oxfam.  We work with many other organisations such as George Washington University and Benadir University. With bases in Mogadishu and Nairobi we bring together a range of different actors working on significantly better outcomes for Somalis.

We are currently running the Matchmaker program which helps people with humanitarian challenges match to innovations which can solve these problems.  Feel free to contact us if you want to get involved or submit a challenge you have through the Matchmaker.  Also if you want to be updated on events we are hosting, what’s happening with humanitarian innovation in Somalia or want to work with us on an innovative solutions get in touch.
