The interesting proposal fits well the anticipate pillar of climate resilience and the need to monitor specific hazards and trigger alerts. The location specificity and contextualization are also well explained and important for the validity of risk monitoring and alerts. The simple app is attractive and does not seem to be too expensive. The clarity of the proposal presentation could be improved even if already implemented in France and Haiti for floods. Overall, a good technical base with experience in France and a good potential for broader roll-out. A key question is the buy-in of users. It is unclear to what extent they are on board for the proposed pilot countries.
The Judges felt this was an interesting proposal, building on two-way communication opportunities provided by modern cellphone technology, which can generate not only better data, but also a stronger connection to the risk information generated. They found it would be critical to quickly test feasibility of scale-up of sensor deployment in developing countries, probably primarily by connecting to implementation-oriented risk management projects and authorities.
The Judges would like to see additional detail on how the project will interface with other actors (e.g., NGOs, etc), in addition to issues related to data sharing and privacy, also related to the level of trust in institutions that would gather and analyze the data.
Please elaborate how the project benefits the multiple stakeholders involved as well as how the project can address new and emerging climate risks.
