H2020, a Start-Up Chile participating team, will officially release the data they’ve collected during their time in Chile on Wednesday, March 16th. The data, collected using their unique mobile phone-based survey, symbolizes the first step in H2020’s Water Poverty Initiative that seeks to “improve public knowledge about water problems in slums, increase the efficiency with which information is gathered and published, and stimulate implementation of scalable solutions.”
Assisted by organizations such as Un Techo para mi Pais, Singularity University, and the Cornell University Water Clinic, H2020’s goal by the end of 2012 is “to have a presence in all cities in Latin America with a population greater than 2 million,” states CEO, Erika Anderson.
