CLEAN WATER access FOR ALL
Envicom recently received grants from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to use geospatial technology solutions to address SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation). We are working with teams in Asutifi North District, Ghana as well as in several prefectures in the Central African Republic.
Our solution: Geospatial web applications that provide centralized management and analytical capabilities for water and sanitation management. We are providing local government, NGOs and local Partners with the tools they need to work collaboratively and meet their targets.
Disaster Preparedness & Response
Improving Communication & ACTION
In the face of what seems to be an ever-increasing number of natural disasters, we need ways to provide complete situational awareness – and quickly. Our staff has been involved with a number of disaster response GIS efforts over the years and we possess Incident Command System (ICS) training.
Mapping Outbreak Locations & Response
In June of 2016 there was a major polio outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Envicom team member Amanda Miner served on a Specialty Technical Team selected by GISCorps for WHO, UNICEF, and the CDC over a 3-month period, managing the real-time adaptation of a web mapping application to response needs on the ground. It assisted with the medical response strategy and implementation, and was a first-of-a-kind effort at this scale.
