STAFF REPORT ISB: Technologists working through the Code for Resilience community have been developing a live-saving technology during disasters in order increase availability of locally relevant technologies that can strengthen community resilience to natural disasters.
Over a marathon weekend of creative brainstorming and rapid prototyping, they built tools to address a series of disaster resilience challenges that had been defined during community workshops and by the public.
The Code for Resilience activities celebrate winners and also encouraged the coders to continue developing ideas into mature applications.
At least five teams are still at work with local govts to implement and scale up these tools. The resulting apps from these events range from support to rescuers during an emergency to a maternal health digitization tool.
