COLLABORATION TECHNOLOGY FOR HUMANITARIAN ACTION AND GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT ROBERT KIRKPATRICK CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER Innovative Support to Emergencies, Diseases, and Disasters

WHAT KINDS OF TECHNOLOGIES WILL HELP US ADAPT TO A CHANGING WORLD AND PREPARE FOR THE UNEXPECTED ? Banda Aceh, Indonesia, 2004

WHAT KINDS OF TECHNOLOGIES WILL HELP US ADAPT TO A CHANGING WORLD AND PREPARE FOR THE UNEXPECTED ?

IN OUR OPINION, COLLABORATION MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

IN OUR OPINION, COLLABORATION MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

WHAT HUMANITARIAN ACTION SHOULD LOOK LIKE You and the diverse groups you now need to work with join forces, share your data, and keep each other in sync. Information flows rapidly, securely, reliably, up, down, and sideways . You work together to analyze the data stream, identify patterns, and synthesize it into actionable information. The response is agile, coordinated, efficient, and effective

You and the diverse groups you now need to work with join forces, share your data, and keep each other in sync.

Information flows rapidly, securely, reliably, up, down, and sideways .

You work together to analyze the data stream, identify patterns, and synthesize it into actionable information.

The response is agile, coordinated, efficient, and effective

A FEW REASONS WHY IT SELDOM DOES … Harsh field conditions Slow, unreliable networks Hot, tired, overloaded responders Low signal-to-noise ratio Data trapped in silos Disincentives for cooperation Lack of good tools for emergent collective action How to include the local community?
