Unicef Mobiles In Disasters Mobile Active08

  1. 1. Mobile, rapid response and global pulse: UNICEF, partners and the changing face of emergency communication
  2. 2. UN-novation (who/at/y) World Bank UNIDO VIA HTC
  3. 3. “The current crisis in Ethiopia is being lost in a swirling mist of competing figures. ” -- BBC News, October 12, 2008 (Yesterday)
  4. 4. RapidSMS: governance becomes system
  5. 5. Digital Doorway and Bee: Build Back Better
  6. 6. Young producers of media, quantitative data, and community pulse will play a vital part in emergency response, and development work.
  7. 7. Old consumers of media, quantitative data, and community pulse will (and must) depend on the speed and breadth of collected data to formulate appropriate emergency response, and target development work.
  8. 8. Bulletin Boards, Groups, and…Anarchy!
  9. 9. So… - sms is a teleporter - groups allow more to access information - young people (~50% of pop in Africa) must be the pulsetakers - strong partnerships allow local development and global implementation - projects must be about people, not technology
