The Uganda Response Innovation Lab is hosted by Save the Children and creates an inter-agency, cross-thematic, multi-sectoral space where the unique challenges posed by the humanitarian crisis in this country can be identified. The RIL provides tools and guidance for actors to jointly develop solutions, whether using existing approaches or incubated innovations. The Lab supports events, convening actors around humanitarian challenges, problem analysis, promotion of innovations that already work and matching problems with solutions.
A range of humanitarian needs exists in Uganda, the growing influx of refugees and asylum seekers from the surrounding region have increased the needs faced by local communities. Given this escalating crisis, the Uganda RIL will support response efforts and innovate around humanitarian challenges in order to improve the lives of the impacted communities.
