People that live in conditions with poor sanitation often have no adequate means to improve their situation. The lack of easy feedback channels to report sanitation problems leaves local governments unaware of the situation. In many countries ‘water-mafias’ take advantage of this disconnect and further worsening the situation for people and the environment at large.
Some ways your app could help:
- improve the reporting of sanitation problems such as clogged sewer lines, illegal septage disposal etc.
- tools to connect citizens and local government to suggest improvements
- help communities to organise themselves
