Full Report: Connecting & Networking for Critical Human Needs

Over the past year, we held an open discussion with the wider Humanitarian Maker community on design and knowledge sharing to support humanitarian making and offered ways to engage in this as well, with a focus on Field Ready items designed in humanitarian contexts. We also collaborated with Makernet to explore three different systems thought to have the potential to help aid agencies buy more of their requirements from local manufacturers in the countries and communities where they work. Now we are sharing back to the community the actions taken, the findings from those actions and the desired ways forward. Previously we shared a "First Peak". Now, the final combined report is available below.
