    Here’s what we’re trying to win the USAID Development 2.0 challenge prize with:

    Our project focuses on the development of the Water Technology Assistant (WTA). The WTA is a cell-phone based application that provides an enhanced and localized interface to the world’s water technology resources in a format that field workers and villagers can use. Much of the technical content is from existing online resources reformatted and rewritten for small screens. The WTA focusses on maintaining the vital connections which help water projects get started, get funded, and succeed at a technical and social level.

    Please head on over to the Akvo blog for full details on how to sign up to vote for the proposal, and the rest of the details on the competition and our entry.

    flattr this!
