Deloitte launches Humanitarian Innovation Program to enhance crisis preparedness and emergency response worldwide

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) and its member firm network have launched the Humanitarian Innovation Program, which will deliver two global pro bono projects for humanitarian organizations. The program launches at a time when humanitarian organizations are increasingly responding to a variety of disasters, requiring an immediate response with limited resources. Deloitte’s Program aims to deliver solutions to humanitarian agencies to help them during the preparation and readiness phases, which could ultimately help to strengthen the response of the local and international community, sustain livelihoods, and save more lives. The Humanitarian Innovation Program will be open to any humanitarian organization worldwide and DTTL will receive applications through July 2013. A panel will review the applications and select two pro bono projects which Deloitte member firms will begin work on in late 2013.
