Programmes & Projects | Crowdsourcing Salon @ Summit Hotel Kathmandu

Local Intervention Group held an invitation only salon on 'Crowdsourcing for Elections' on 1st of February 2013 at Summit Hotel in Kathmandu. LIG is deploying the crowdsourcing technology to prevent election violence and violations in the run up to the election, and monitor them in real time during the election. This technology will track and monitor election violence and violations by gathering data and information from the public and geo-mapping them onto a Google map in real time. The purpose of the salon was to explore ways in which this game changer technology can be deployed in total sync with everyone who has ever worked in elections to make Nepal’s next election comparatively freer, fairer, and more transparent and accountable.
