Synopsis: ELRHA’s new Adoption Challenge aims to tackle the complex barriers within the WASH ecosystem that prevent the sustainable adoption of humanitarian WASH innovations.
The ambition of this first-of-its-kind Adoption Challenge is to enable humanitarian organisations to adopt promising new solutions, adapt them to new settings and evaluate their effectiveness. Ultimately, with this support, ELRHA aims to enable the sustained use, at scale, of innovations that can improve outcomes for people affected by crisis.
ELRHA is looking for humanitarian organisations interested in adopting innovations from its WASH Innovation Catalogue into their programmes. Funding will be made available to cover the adoption costs. If evidence gathered throughout the grant shows that the innovation is effective, then adopting organisations will be expected to commit to sustained adoption.
