Often neglected, the world’s sanitation crisis needs urgent attention across multiple sectors to meet the basic needs of the 2.5 billion people without access. With the global revolution in low-cost information and communication technologies, there is a huge opportunity to address information flow problems across the sector, helping to make improved sanitation services more accessible and sustainable for the world’s people.
SanitationHackathon will be the first ever global gathering of sanitation experts and technologists for an intensive weekend dedicated to creating ICT solutions to sanitation challenges. In addition to Lahore, SanitationHackathon will simultaneously be taking place in Jakarta, Lahore, Pune, Dhaka, Dar es Salaam, Helsinki, San Francisco, New York, London, Lima, and Cape Town-
Sanitation experts are working with local communities to define some of the most pressing sanitation challenges in each of those cities. Programmers, software engineers and data specialists will then team up to put their technical skills to work mashing up data, building on open source technology platforms and developing apps that respond to those challenges, which the sanitation sector can put to use on the ground to aid the communities that need them.
