Over the past couple of years, we have used our Labs to test new ideas and products for ReliefWeb. It's in this space that we have seen, for example, the growth of our API or the Video section.

At the same time, we saw a significant increase in activity related to humanitarian innovation, indicating that innovation has become central to the humanitarian community. It's a pity not to share the great innovative work we come across, so we're expanding ReliefWeb Labs to showcase resources on humanitarian innovation, including news, global reports, lessons learned, job openings, trainings, social media and videos.

In October 2014, we undertook a comprehensive user survey designed to help us get a better understanding of why and how you use ReliefWeb as well as what you do with the information you find. We also wanted to find out what kind of humanitarian information you need for your daily work, and what services you may want from ReliefWeb going forward. By learning more about you and your humanitarian information needs, we can improve the existing features and better plan for new services.

The survey was also focused around discovering how you rate ReliefWeb’s current products and services and how you want to receive humanitarian information.
