We rely on GIS - Geographic Information Systems - to locate Syrian families living in informal settlements in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley. Once we have their location mapped, we give each informal settlement an ‘address,’ which we then share with @Refugees and other humanitarian aid organisations so they can provide those settlements with support. #Humanitarianaid#Lebanon#BekaaValley#mapping#informalsettlement#technology#GIS
Vukuzenzele is a digital puzzle game that uses the concept of re-blocking to reimagine the layout of an informal settlement, granting access to basic services.
Vukuzenzele was developed by RenderHeads and Ikhayalami. Announced in April this year, it is a puzzle game about reimagining informal settlements in South Africa through the process of “re-blocking”. Re-blocking refers to the reconfiguring of informal settlement layouts in order to provide a greater spatial arrangement that is centred around access to basic services and creates a more vibrant and safe community.
Faces of Blikkiesdorp.
Blikkiesdorp is an informal settlement near Delft in Cape Town. It was initially supposed to be a temporary relocation settlement where more than half of gentrified Woodstock families find themselves but some families have been here for more than 15 years.
