1) Objective

The Humanitarian Innovation call for projects (APIH) was initiated by the Humanitarian and Stabilization Operations Center (COHS) in 2021, following commitments made at the French National Humanitarian Conference (CNH) and recommendations from an external audit of the Emergency Humanitarian Fund (FUH). It serves as an annual financing instrument aimed at supporting innovative and structural humanitarian projects conducted by local and international NGOs specializing in emergency responses. The objective is to promote the development of impactful solutions that benefit the entire humanitarian sector, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of humanitarian action and aligning with the objectives of the 2023-2027 French Humanitarian Strategy.

In 2024, the APIH focuses on priority themes including integrating gender perspectives into humanitarian action, addressing the impacts of climate change on humanitarian crises, and protecting civilians, humanitarian personnel, and the humanitarian space while combatting impunity for crimes against them.

2) Eligibility

The APIH welcomes applications from NGOs operating globally. However, projects must demonstrate relevance to humanitarian challenges and contexts, particularly in regions affected by crises and conflicts.

3) Location

Actions can take place worldwide.

4) Budget

Projects eligible for APIH funding must have budgets ranging from €200,000 to €1,000,000. The funding is intended to support innovative initiatives with the potential for high impact and scalability within the humanitarian sector.

5) Application

During the initial application phase (April 8 to May 31, 2024), interested NGOs are required to submit several documents, including an initiative note outlining project innovation and planned activities, a provisional budget, logical framework, and implementation timeline. Preselected projects will undergo further review, potentially requiring adjustments, before final selections are made in the first half of July 2024. Applications should be submitted to the designated email address provided by the Crisis and Support Center.
