I had the honor of presenting “The Open Aid Movement” at the 2018 NVOAD conference in Providence, Rhode Island. This presentation offers an overview of the Open Aid Movement and its four components. Each component had a case study that was prepared by an expert in that specific area.
The four components and slide contributors are:
- Grassroots Disaster Relief Networks – Case Study by Jeff Reichman of Sketch City who responded to Hurricane Harvey in Houston Texas.
- Volunteer Technical Communities – Case Studies by Willow Brugh, coordinator of the Digital Humanitarian Network
- Open Source Software – Case Study of Crisis Cleanup by Aaron Titus, founder of Crisis Cleanup.
- Open Data Practices – Case study by Javier Teran of UNOCHA’s Humanitarian Data Exchange Project.
Thanks to all the contributors who offered their slides and knowledge, and to those who attended the presentation and engaged in lively discussion during and after the session.
Without further ado – here are the slides:
