Field Ready

Field Ready is a US-based 501(c)(3) non-governmental, non- profit organization that is pioneering ways to provide humanitarian relief and meet needs by transforming logistics and ultimately how aid is provided.

Our vision is to meet humanitarian need by transforming logistics through technology, innovative design and engaging people in new ways. Field Ready brings manufacturing to challenging places. We train others to solve problems locally in areas such as health, water and sanitation. We use different technologies (traditional, appropriate and exponential) to achieve our goals. We work worldwide in places such as Haiti, Nepal, Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Fiji.

We are scaling our approach wherever there is need. The impact of this is dramatically improving efficiency in aid delivery by meeting needs that are at best only partially fulfilled at present in part by cutting procurement costs and reducing transport and saving time.

Biography

Abi works as Technical Advisor for Field Ready, an NGO seeking to revolutionise the delivery of aid through local manufacturing. In 2016 she headed Field Ready’s operations in Nepal, working through numerous partnerships with NGO’s, maker spaces and industrial scale manufacturers to investigate how local manufacturing (including technologies such as 3D printing) can best benefit the earthquake response. Since then, she has applied these learnings to set up new disaster resilience programs for the Pacific region.
