Be prepared for new ways of thinking. Be prepared for new degrees of collaboration and innovation. Be prepared for positive change.

About the Deloitte Humanitarian Innovation Program

Through the Deloitte Humanitarian Innovation Program, the professionals of Deloitte member firms and humanitarian organizations co-create and implement solutions to the sector's most pressing challenges. By collaborating with local, national, and international humanitarian leaders – combining diverse skills and expertise – we enhance the ability of the sector to prepare for, and respond to, crises.

Applications for the 2014 Program are now closed.

Participants selected in 2013

In 2013, Deloitte selected AtrocityWatch and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to work with on a pro-bono basis as part of the Deloitte Humanitarian Innovation Program.

At Deloitte, we are committed to shaping innovations which are at the heart of change and progress. The projects proposed by these two organizations were selected from a large number of applicants as outstanding examples of all that the Deloitte Humanitarian Innovation Program aims to achieve.

Deloitte professionals are working with AtrocityWatch to help shape the development of a mobile enabled solution which will use person driven data from around the world to provide early warning of potential mass atrocities.

To help the International Organization for Migration more efficiently respond to crises, professionals from Deloitte Switzerland  and IOM are working together to improve co-ordination of response on the ground and inter-agency information management.

Once these projects are complete, Deloitte will share the ideas and solutions developed so that the whole humanitarian sector can benefit from and scale them.
