dc.description.abstractThis report explores how to balance humanitarian uses of emerging technologies and other public goods. It draws on 10 semi-structured interviews conducted in Manila, Philippines in August 2018 with purposefully selected interlocutors representing both government and non-government sectors. The outcomes of those interviews were then discussed with humanitarian workers in Japan in September 2018 to gain a comparative perspective between a developing and a developed economy that both routinely experience significant disasters. Two principle issues arose during interviews on this topic. The first was the regulation of data handling to ensure that the benefits of data-based innovations were balanced with concerns of privacy, a particular example of a public good. The second was regulation of experimentation to ensure innovations are properly tested while still protecting subjects who consent to be part of trials. This report details the findings on those two issues. Where appropriate, it situates those findings within broader debates in the literature on humanitarian innovation. Based on this, it provides a series of policy recommendations.
