HFP sees three main challenges to greater creative thinking and innovative practice within the humanitarian sector. These are identified as follows:
1. How can innovation be prioritised and identified within the sector?
2. How can innovative approaches be developed and tested within one’s own organisation and operating network?
3. How does one create and sustain partnerships that foster innovation?

This short paper seeks to provoke thinking and discussion about the three challenges noted above during the course of the HFP Stakeholder’s Forum 2008. It also serves as a foundation, or precursor, for further HFP work in the area of innovation and “innovations brokering” over the 2009-2010 period.
