ALNAP and ELRHA will be looking at 15 different examples of humanitarian innovation funded by ELRHA’s Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF) grants. Each case study will explore the dynamics of successful innovation processes, culminating in a unique and in-depth study on innovation in humanitarian action.

The Mine Action Application (MApps) is a digital portal designed by Danish Demining Group (DDG) to increase access to mine action information for people living in areas contaminated with mines and other explosive remnants of war. The MApps portal provides an online platform for civilians to report and view approximate areas contaminated by explosive remnants of war and learn more about mine risk from mine action operators. This case study looks at an innovation that takes place in an active conflict setting.
