* BACKGROUND: The IRC is implementing a community-led innovation initiative to nurture and develop bottom-up solutions to problems facing communities in Jordan. This project will engage diverse communities and stakeholders in Jordan – including host communities, refugees, local governments, public and private sector actors and enterprising individuals – to devise and develop solutions that address their own lived realities and problems. It will center around three participatory “design challenges” based in a ‘lab’ setting, with each challenge aiming to mobilize teams around developing solutions to thematic problem areas we identify together. Themes will aim to develop a wide range of concepts for scalable innovations under the broader umbrella of accommodating displaced populations, accelerating recovery and increasing community resilience. This approach combines the best aspects of both bottom-up and formally-managed innovation processes to identify new solutions that are responsive to the changing needs of the wide range of communities in Jordan today. The first of the three design challenges will look to generate new solutions to support the generation of sufficient, predictable, and safe income, the second will focus on access to services, and the third on learning.
