>>>> UN that I will share.
>>>>
>>>>
>>>>
>>>> 3. The *data*. What needs to be mapped is quite known, but how to do
>>>> it to make it as clean and efficient as possible. That links to the mapping
>>>> instructions and the validation<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_Tasking_Manager/Validating_data>but also to how the data can be reused by the humanitarian stakeholders.
>>>> There a lot of potential improvements to propose not only raw data but eg
>>>> thematic dataset, what the HOT Exports can already potentially provide (in
>>>> link with the Technical Working Group).
>>>>
>>>>
>>>>
>>>> 4. Last, but really not least is to *make more OSM contributors know* about
>>>> the procedures and tools used to map, monitor, communicate and activate an
>>>> OSM community, and expand the number of contributors in the Activations,
>>>> according to everyone's interest(s). This implies connecting with local OSM
>>>> communities when possible, talk with them and provide them documentation
>>>> and online training. Eg in Lubumbashi after Jorieke's stay, the contact

>>>> training has been and will be provided through Mumble. So now, they are
