Riskmap project is one of the finalists for MIT Solve 2018 Global Challenge in the coastal communities category. 

Solve is an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that advances lasting solutions from tech entrepreneurs to address the world's most pressing problems. Solve then builds and convenes a community of leaders and changemakers to form partnerships these Solver teams need to scale their impact.

Riskmap harnesses the power of citizen reporting and social media to map time-critical information without needing to install any new applications or training. Currently operating in three countries - Indonesia, India and the United States - this platform connects residents, who often have the best-localized information, with emergency managers to drastically cut down on response times.
