IGNITE Stage: Waste Hotline: using GIS tools to reduce public health risks
- Time and Date: Wednesday 11 May (10:15 - 10:30)
Disaster Waste Recovery
To reduce public health risks arising from wastes generated from IDP camps in Port-au-Prince, the Waste Hotline project incorporates online, multi-lingual GIS functionality. As a control system, it allows the camps themselves to request waste collection and then manages the collection contractors with an in-built voucher system for payments. This efficient capture, exchange and utilisation of data provides the best decision support, communication, and collaboration possible. The presentation will be a 15mins live presentation of the Waste Hotline GIS tool in realtime using actual activities ongoing in Port-au-Prince.
