Creation of a Regional Information Platform: the example of Water Data Gathering

In order to improve the Early Warning system and move toward real-time information dissemination, the use of new technologies is more and more developed and advocated.

The Nokia Data Gathering system collects pictures, description and GPS information on water resources through the use of mobile phone. This information is sent in a web-based GIS mapping application showing the analysis directly on a map.

In Ethiopia, this activity has mostly been developed in partnership with Oxfam.
