Hey Maning, thanks for the email: the fact that a local OSM community has
been handling training and support to the VSO volunteers for the second
iteration of a EUROSHA like program makes this replication even more
This indicates an increases of the replicability of such program and
somehow reminds us of the HOT project about the fundamental_overarching aim
of our action: create/support local OSM capacities able to interact with
any actors in-country and globally.
