Information about the project
Rebuilding after the Tsunami: using ICTs for change
This project builds on already existing efforts and initiatives and is currently developing a set of bilingual, dynamic websites and a system of email accounts. The ensuing suite of websites will enable organisations involved in tsunami reconstruction work to publish their work directly on to the global web-space; and share techniques, best-practices and learning experiences in Tsunami devastated communities. The use of reusable and replicable tools, all those involved will have significantly reduced costs through using this type of channel and will see an increase the speed of their communications.
Regional implementation
Ongoing from
