This presentation will focus on the innovative work that PCI is doing in 3 countries (Ethiopia, Tanzania and Guatemala) across multiple sectors (eg, urban renewal including health, WASH, and shelter; and food, nutrition and livelihood security) to effectively combine locally sourced, traditional methods of information and communication with high tech, mobile and/or satellite sourced data and means of transmitting and presenting that data, for optimal uptake and decision making by local actors. AfriScout (Ethiopia and Tanzania) is an innovative approach, including mobile phone application, to blending satellite generated data with indigenous knowledge and information sharing mechanisms in order to help pastoralists effectively pinpoint pasture and water in the face of climate change using real time maps, with significant results in terms of livestock mortality and family resiliency. D-RISK is a decision support system that involves layering primary and secondary data, including participant-generated information, for complete mapping and optimal planning and empowered decision making for risk mitigation and resource management in high risk urban (Guatemala) as well as rural (Ethiopia) areas. Outcomes ranging from health and nutrition to household income and neighborhood renewal will be shared, as well as lessons learned and recommendations for how best to blend indigenous information and practices with ICT for optimal, sustainable impact.
