fcdo innovative tech pilot funding
Humanitarians should understand the potential for innovative technology in the development context because these tools can significantly enhance the effectiveness and reach of their efforts.

  • Testing and scaling innovative ideas is crucial to ensure that these technologies are effective and adaptable to different contexts.
  • Pilot programs allow for the identification and resolution of potential issues before broader implementation.

Successful innovations can then be scaled to benefit larger populations, providing a sustainable and impactful solution to development challenges.
