Nuwan commented on Connecting Urban Slums for Enhanced Resilience

Interesting idea connecting urban slums. This relates to some of the work that I'm doing in Stewarding Technology and Communities of Practice (Wenger et al); although our focus in this current project is in agricuture the concepts can be applied to any group: http://mobilizingknowledge.blogspot.hk/2015/09/the-future-of-knowledge-sharing-in.html

Essentially, what you are addressing is a community of practice involving experts in climate change adaptation and urban slum communities. Mapping, Texting, and Voice-enabled ICT tools are easy-to-use and rapidly prototype knowledge mobilization within the community of practice.

Games, game-sourcing, or play-sourcing help incentive such communities to engage.
