Tanzania Urban Resilience Program: Digital Microtasking to Reduce Climate Risk in Zanzibar


Rapid urbanization and climate change is increasing risk in cities. We can reduce risk through the timely collection of actionable risk data including how fast, where, and how cities are growing. See how Tanzanian students are engaging in digital “microtasking” to validate global urbanization datasets, ensuring the quality of the data, creating employment opportunities, and providing learning opportunities on valuable digital skills.
