The GSMA Innovation Fund for Anticipatory Humanitarian Action

About the GSMA Innovation Fund for Anticipatory Humanitarian Action

Launched on 24th November 2022, the GSMA Innovation Fund for Anticipatory Humanitarian Action will back solutions that leverage mobile digital technology to help anticipate potential humanitarian impacts and enable effective early response. By focusing on the important theme of anticipatory action the Fund will contribute towards the minimisation of humanitarian impacts and the improvement of preparedness in the face of sudden-onset crises.  

The GSMA is open to applications from non-profit organisations (including NGOs, INGOs, humanitarian agencies and social enterprises) as well as for-profit organisations (limited to commercially viable start-ups, SMEs and social enterprises with up to 250 employees).

Successful projects will receive a grant of between £100,000 and £250,000 to scale their innovation over a 15 to 18 month period. Applications close on 19th January 2023.

The GSMA is a member of the Risk-Informed Early Action Partnership (REAP) – a global network of stakeholders from across climate, humanitarian and development communities. We support REAP’s aim of ensuring 1 billion people are safer from disasters by 2025.
