Crowd sourcing crisis solutions in a time of need

One of the key focus of much literature involving crisis and disaster management is how governments and NGOs are responding.  Often social media tools are used to report if people are safe in a crisis or where it can be brought to.  However, when one looks at how various countries have use technology to crowd source solutions from a community level – this opens up a new way of approaching how to help at the community level whether crises or refugee situations that emerge.

POVERTY

Many of the communities in Africa face the challenge of being able to provide the basic needs. I'm a geospatial student and when undertaking a survey of an area one finds out that there are more possible solutions to the problem of poverty it's only that most people are only fixed to a certain kind of work and they are not ready to venture into new opportunities. When a new idea comes in you find most people flooded in the same without taking account of any other opportunity.

Governance in Africa is shrouded in secrecy

In almost all African countries, the business of governance is done in secret such that the people have no good information about what the government is doing. Information coming from the government to the people is edited in favour of the government. The people have little or no contributions to governance because they have no proper knowledge of what happens in the government circle. Simply put, there is no freedom of information. Laws are circumvented and twisted by those who have the arm.
