“How can drone data and AI tools become more relevant to solving local social challenges? How can we turn data into action by bringing back drone data and insights to beneficiaries? And how can drones and data be used ethically to solve local problems?

These are the 3 most pressing challenges we encounter in our work in the Global South. And we believe that local experts are best placed to find the most fitting global solutions to solve these challenges.”
