Pakistan Flood Incident Reporting System


Introduction
Devastating floods in Pakistan have claimed over 1600 lives and displaced over 18 million — or 1 out of every 10 people in the country — and the disaster shows no sign of abating. Significant resources are flowing into the region to provide immediate relief. But access to relevant, up-to-date, timely, and authentic data from the affected communities, specifying the hardest-hit areas and precise locations of displacement, remains elusive. These gaps in data gathering disrupt initiatives for immediate assistance and for long-term policy planning. To overcome such gaps, Pakistan Flood Incident Reporting (http://pakrelief.crowdmap.com) was launched immediately after the recent floods. PakRelief CrowdMap, as it is known, is a data portal designed to gather comprehensive and dynamic information on disaster-related variables. The website identifies key information to facilitate better long-term policy analysis.

Because Pakistan enjoys a broad and burgeoning mobile phone user base, mobiles and SMS are the best way to reach large numbers of people. This is especially true in crisis situations where, as in some areas, only cell phone service remains accessible. PakRelief CrowdMap is a direct connection to individuals on the ground level, and allows these individuals to report and access information through easy-to-read maps. PakRelief simplifies this process: individuals in flood-affected regions can report on the current situation by sending an SMS to 3441. Humanitarian organizations and relief workers are also encouraged to submit information, either by using SMS, using the online form at http://pakrelief.crowdmap.com/reports/submit, or by e-mailing the administrators. To verify the reports, a team of administrators review the received information, update it where necessary, and publish it on the CrowdMap. The administrators are a team of collaborators with significant experience in coordinating global disaster situations.

Main components of the portal
This backend of this portal is based on Ushahidi, an open source software developed for tracking spatial-temporal data. Numerous global projects effectively employ Ushahidi’s reliable and easy-to-use technology, including users in Haiti, Nigeria, Gaza, and India. The platform has been used to support a variety of information flows, including disasters, ethnic and political conflicts, and election results. News outlets and media recognize Ushahidi’s invaluable contributions to data organization and filtering. (See
http://www.state.gov/secretary/rm/2010/08/145623.htm and http://www.state.gov/secretary/rm/2010/01/135519.htm).

The development of PakRelief CrowdMap unfolded in three key stages:

Technology: The first stage of development involved acquiring the code and integrating it into an online portal. Because of the rapid response time of the initial organizers, this was completed on 12 August 2010.
Spread the Message: The second stage involves spreading the message throughout affected and assisting communities. Currently, the team is focused on designing campaigns to encourage flood-affected victims to contribute to the CrowdMap. The team also seeks to partner with news agencies and humanitarian organizations to create a comprehensive map.

Moderate and Map Reports: The third stage requires the timely verification of reports to the CrowdMap platform. Moderators, equipped with experience from previous deployments of the platform in Haiti and Kenya, will ensure that this process is efficient, effective, and fool-proof.

How Humanitarian Organizations Can Help
Help us spread the message. The message is simple: text your location and your observations about the disaster to 3441, starting the message with “FL”, so we can map your reports. Disseminate this message through small cards printed in multiple languages, and distribute the cards to local staff, camps, and alongside the supply of food and medicines in the area. Please publicize this message in online, radio, and newspaper campaigns as well.

Submit and use information from the CrowdMap. Humanitarian agencies will undoubtedly observe first-hand the current situation and needs in disaster-affected areas. Please upload these observations and this valuable information on the portal to ensure that all stakeholders and agencies in the area can benefit from cooperation. Humanitarian agencies can also subscribe to the CrowdMap, receiving verified reports to supplement their own information and to send to their staff.

Verify the Reports. Humanitarian organizations can also help our team to moderate the reports submitted to the portal. This collaboration will help avoid misleading reports from tainting the data.

How Individuals Can Help
If you are an individual working in a disaster-affected region, please provide information on your location and its current status as regularly as possible. Even if you are not in the field, your knowledge is valuable! If you are aware of damage done to a certain location, you can report that information through SMS, e-mail, or on the website.

Report Categories
Information on the website is organized and can be submitted to the following categories:
• Water and sanitation
• Health
• Logistics
• Camps
• Shelter
• Protection
• Vital Lines
• Emergency
• Service Available

Some of these categories contain further subdivisions. Browse online at http://pakrelief.crowdmap.com/ for more information.

Small step to remove Poverty from Pakistan


Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime

Today after attending PYR meeting in Maritime museum I was going back home, At shaheed e Millat Road signal a kid came & ask me to clean my car windscreen, I refused, so he went on to other cars, Then again on Korangi road signal another kid came & I refused again. Finally I reached at Shahbaz commercial signal & call a kid who was cleaning windscreens of cars, He cleaned my car wind screen as well as side mirror & back mirror in 1.5Min, I gave him Rs.10 & see a smile on his face, he said shukrya & went on to another car, Suddenly an idea came in my mind that why not, I start something for all those kids who are working on signals & cleaning car mirrors. My home was 6min drive from shahbaz commercial signal & in that time I was just thinking about them that how can I help them or do something good for them, Finally I plan out the whole idea & here is some points of that idea & I believe that if we work on it we will help them in their education & remove their Poverty.

On each & every signal we install a small box for water with surf or any other cleaning material & few vipers. 2 to 3 kids on all signal side with one head guy who collect the money, All these kids should be in nice uniform & they all join their duty at 5 o clock in the evening & till 10 o clock they do their duty. After work, head guy of that team should distribute all money between them.

All these kids should join that team with proper paper work & its necessary for all of them to join schools in morning time & deposit their School card with their guardian NIC copy & head of the team have responsibility to monitor all these kids activities that they are going school or not and if any of them lying or not going school then he/she immediately get fired.

Through that work we can at least try to remove poverty & beggars from the roads of Pakistan. Now how that idea should be implemented, So friends as we all want to do something for our country then lets start work on it we just need to involve our corporate sector as well as individuals who sponsor the whole idea, we give them different roads signal & put the logo of these companies on the water boxes as well as kids uniform. Even we offer Mineral water companies to install their coolers on that particular signal & other kids’ team serve water in afternoon time & charge Rs.1 or Rs.2 for per Glass. Because I want to remove beggary from my nation & give respectable jobs with handsome earning amount.

I know I will receive comments that its against child labour law & my answer is that its better then beggary. If you can remove beggary from my nation with any other idea then you people are welcome.

Waiting for all of you people to start that work as soon as possible & remember we have to own our country then we change the future of Pakistan
