University commented on Mobile-based Early Warning of Floods

sounds a great idea - how do we go about it?

University commented on SEWA- Spread the word!

Hi Aman, it's great to read that you see synergies between our ideas. Do you know already where you will be testing out your idea? (I know that in the next phase of the challenge we will need to get beneficiary feedback and we are considering several possible locations for that). If a PCP could make culturally-relevant connections in particular places in India, that's really interesting and could help with it being used. Do Indian cities and slum areas also have chaupals or something similar?

University commented on We're here!

Thanks for your extensive comments. We have been thinking through some of these issues as well. there needs to be a balance between mobility and permanence, because if the PCP moves too frequently, then people won't be able to keep track of it or know where it is. It also would not really allow for community to emerge around it. So finding the middle ground between something like your idea and a completely mobile booth would be good.
