There are 22 days left to submit proposals for innovative ways to address disaster recovery for the World Reconstruction Conference (May 10-13 2011 in Geneva). Winners will be invited to the conference. All qualified entries will be invited to submit a poster presentation of their idea.
From the website:
“The focus of the competition is on innovation in services, products and approaches that have been implemented at the local level in disaster recovery and reconstruction. The aim is to:
- showcase innovative and new solutions developed in the wake of disasters;
- develop awareness for their use in other and future recovery operations;
- provide a space to build partnerships to address key challenges in scaling up and replicating.
“Sectors of interest include but are not limited to: housing, water and sanitation, education, health, energy, transportation, information and communication technology (ICT), monitoring and evaluation, environment, governance and institutional strengthening.”
Let’s get some ICT proposals out there.
