In February 2015, ReliefWeb launched the Videos section beta v. 1.0 in our Labs space to gauge the usefulness of this new content service. Based on the surveys and analytics, we are happy to find that users love our Video section, content of which is painstakingly selected for relevance and tagged for ease of discovery by our editorial team.

Based on the popularity of the beta version, our product team has enhanced the design and navigation while the editorial team continues to find, select and curate the video content, which now numbers some 3,000 and keeps growing daily.

Now, we are offering curated video content in various relevant sections of the site - Countries, Topics and Updates. Latest videos can be found alongside the content river.

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.
