This had led to a surge of interest in new technology and innovative thinking to offer desperately-needed solutions in global development and humanitarian contexts.

Frontier Technologies Landscape Review

Frontier Technology Hub wants a landscape review paper to identify new technology and innovative thinking , drawing on evidence from pilots and sharing human stories. The FT Hub is interested in engaging a partner to shine light on tech for humanitarian contexts and help us understand:

  • What are the 5-10 key innovations that we see transforming the humanitarian sector?
  • What’s been proven, where is the frontier today, what’s the potential for impact?
  • Who are the technologists already working on these innovations and what are their stories?
  • What are the risks and challenges specific to innovating in the humanitarian sector?
  • How are humanitarian actors and innovators managing these risks?

The landscape review of frontier technology applications should give the reader a broad perspective of what is emerging across international development. The ambition is for this report to better understand the state of transparency in humanitarian aid globally, and particularly at FCDO. There is a total of 45,000 GBP available for this contract.
