Many houses in San Pedro (south of Manila) are built from whatever people can find, most houses have no windows thus it’s often dark there, even during the day (due to power breaks or people cannot afford to pay  their electricity bills). Solution –

Sean - to build on your point about moving the analog to digital. Premise Data Corp is doing something interesting, which might be an inspiration. Inflation numbers usually come out with delay and the company wanted to see if they can collect real time data. They are using data collectors armed with smartphones all over the country, capturing real-time instances of price rises in local markets. Majority of the collectors work for less than two hours per day (I’m assuming it could be a cost of 40-50 USD per month in Delhi, benchmarking it with domestic help rates), capturing 30-40 price points in neighborhood markets.

I was also thinking about it. It could be for instance decrease in rape cases (you get paid for the instances that didn't happen). Similar to what Toby Eccles describes, you’ll need a group where you implement support measures and compare results with a control group.

This is a big topic in India right now (the government has put aside appx USD 160 mln for fighting rape and molestation). Data is reported by Police & National Crime Bureau.

There’s some background info in this Times of India article: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Rs-1000-crore-Nirbhaya-fund-remains-untouched/articleshow/27380729.cms
