Hacking the Covid-19 in Niger
Niger launched an online hackathon to figure out ways to help communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the support of UNICEF, the National Agency for the Information Society and a group of startup accelerators have launched a virtual hackathon that will bring together innovators and idea makers from across the country to develop solutions for responding to the coronavirus outbreak.
The idea of organizing hackathons aims to find solutions to help people overcome the instabilities and uncertainties they are facing amid the COVID-19 pandemic in Niger.
A hackathon is a natural accelerator for resilience actions, it enables the open exchange of talent and knowledge to develop solutions for problems brought about and exacerbated by the outbreak.
