Dr Alexander Betts is this week presenting research on humanitarian innovation at the the Global Humanitarian Policy Forum at UN Headquarters in New York

The Global Humanitarian Policy Forum, convened by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), will bring together over 100 leading humanitarian policy-makers and practitioners to begin preparation for the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016.

Taking place 12–13 December 2013, one of the forum's four main thematic areas will be humanitarian innovation, and Dr Betts and Louise Bloom have prepared a draft background document, 'Humanitarian innovation: the state of the art'. Dr Betts is also co-facilitating the corresponding segment.
