Following the success of the inaugural Humanitarian Innovation Conference,
the Humanitarian Innovation Project announces that #HIP2015 [1] will again
take place in Oxford in July 2015. The 2015 conference theme is
‘facilitating innovation’. As interest and dialogue around humanitarian
innovation continues to expand, conference participants are invited to
explore the challenges of creating an enabling environment for humanitarian
innovation.
 
In the lead up to the World Humanitarian Summit, a key focus of the
conference will explore how we enable innovation by and for affected
communities. What does it mean to take a human-centred approach seriously,
and to engage in co-creation with affected populations? It will also seek to
examine what facilitation means across the wider humanitarian ecosystem, and
how we can better convene the collective talents of people within and across
traditional and non-traditional humanitarian actors.

As the crucial role of bees as pollinators of the world’s food supply is increasingly becoming common knowledge, reports about the serious decline of honeybee populations in Europe and the USA have alarmed governments, the private sector and the general public. A similar decline in Africa and Asia has the potential to further threaten the world’s biodiversity, in addition to compromising the food security and livelihoods of millions of rural resource-poor farmers, as well as having negative impacts on the agricultural income of commercial farmers.
