Challenges

Cities and communities all around the world are faced with a multitude of challenges – from flooding to inadequate housing. Most of them have no access to the knowledge and technology available that could help them act against them, because:

  • Knowledge is scattered and nonintegrated
  • Tools and services are too expensive
  • Processes are long and complex
  • The implementation relies on continued external support

As a consequence, not only the actions taken by different actors result in lower social, economic and environmental impacts, but they cannot be replicated at the urgency and scale that issues such as climate change require.

How do we solve it?

We develop and implement software solutions that are built on the following principles:

  • Technical soundness grounded on well-established frameworks
  • Ease of use to allow wider outreach
  • Flexibility to adapt to the most diverse contexts
  • Incrementalism to support the step-wise implementation
  • Use and management of local knowledge
  • Capacity-building of cities and communities

= replicability, scalability and sustainability

H.A.R.D. - Disaster Risk Management Made Simple

The number and impact of disasters increase every year. From natural events such floods and earthquakes, to man-made ones as fires and pollution, it’s not a matter of if, but of when the next one will happen.

Nevertheless, currently only as few as 4% of cities have a disaster warning system.

What Does H.A.R.D. Do?

H.A.R.D. is a web- and mobile-based tool that allows cities and citizens to work together in preparing for, responding to and recovering from disasters and crises. Actions can be developed and implemented in a matter of weeks, with little need for external assistance.

H.A.R.D. provides a simple and structured way for people to use their own knowledge through a step-by-step process in order to:

Commissioned product

E-Strategic Financing Framework (E-SFF)

The E-SFF is a platform for governments to work along stakeholders to structure the institutional and financial delivery of slum improvement projects. The project was commissioned by UN-Habitat’s Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme (PSUP).

The E-SFF consolidates and streamlines a series of frameworks, presentations, text files, and worksheets. As a result, it will allow PSUP to reach out to a much larger number of partners, guiding them on mobilizing resources for city- and nation-wide slum upgrading and prevention initiatives.
