Subject: [responsible_data] Looking for Digital Technology Innovations for
Resilience in Asia
We are currently working with the Rockefeller Foundation, in association
with the Global Resilience Partnership
<http://www.globalresiliencepartnership.org/> to identify potential
digital technology innovations that may have a positive impact on
resilience outcomes in Asia. Although this is not explicitly responsible
data focused, I’m sharing this in case some of you on the list are working
on anything relevant.
We’re interested in the whole range of digital technologies, from
mobile-based communications, to sensor technologies, gaming, big data
applications, and beyond. If you are involved with the deployment of any
digital technology innovation that is already or has the potential to
enable individuals, communities or systems to survive, adapt, grow, and
transform in the face of shocks and stresses, then please complete this
brief form <https://goo.gl/forms/BUiAYofd5LmEwYPt2> to tell us more about
We will be compiling submissions into an inventory of innovations that we
will publish and share with the wider development community as a quick and
easy reference. Outstanding innovations may also be invited to participate
at a two-day public convening on innovation and resilience to be held in
Bangkok, Thailand later this year. In addition, up to five innovations may
also receive targeted technical (and potentially financial) support to
scale their innovations.
Please feel free to forward this email on to anyone else who you think
might be interested. And if you plan to submit your work
<https://goo.gl/forms/BUiAYofd5LmEwYPt2> please do so *before March 24th*.
Thanks in advance for your contributions.
