The rise of new technologies: utility, misuse and meaning

Humanitarian Alternatives

Humanitarian Alternatives

Abstract: Innovation is not a new phenomenon for leading actors of international solidarity. A number of historical examples has shown this, such as the creation of bamboo prostheses for Cambodian refugees by Handicap International in the 1960s, the development of Plumpy'Nut® - a nutritional product derived from peanuts - by Nutriset, in collaboration with Action Contre la Faim, or the solutions Oxfam developed for emergency water provision. What has changed over the last few years is the rise of innovative as a strategic concern for the humanitarian sector as a whole.
