The proliferation and adoption of mobile phones and social media technologies presents new ways of capturing conversations surrounding crisis events in real-time. This allows researchers, analysts, and first-responders to explore events by monitoring many media sources (blogs, photos, web feeds, news sources, and tweets) from one environment.

The tragic situation unfolding in South Sudan is complex and evolving rapidly. The rate at which the fledgling state has descended into political and social unrest is distressing and highlights the need for urgent intervention. Thus, having ways to identify and engage influencers and to anticipate and potentially mitigate disastrous scenarios is greatly needed.

Using a combination of the data-analysis products available from D8A Group, we’ve been monitoring the unfolding events in real-time to illustrate ways our technology platforms can be used by NGOs, first-responders, civil society organizations and government agencies make data informed decisions in real-time in crisis scenarios.
