Activity 3.2 B
Assess solution maturity
This activity will help you assess the maturity of your shortlisted solutions to better understand how widespread their use is in the humanitarian sector, or beyond, and their applicability to your problem.
The solution you have identified may or may not be well-developed and well-understood. That is, it may or may not be in widespread use in the humanitarian sector or beyond, and there may be differing levels of evidence to support its applicability to your problem.
In order to fully understand the adaptation requirements of a solution, you will first need to assess its maturity. We provide a specific tool for technology-based solutions. For non-technology-based solutions, we recommend assessing the level of evidence that supports the solution and the relevance of this to your intended use, as well as guidance available for implementation. (We are currently working on a tool to help you in this assessment.)
