Dear everyone,

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is implementing a
disaster awareness and mapping project for SE Asia and Caribbean
dubbed as "Maptastic!" [0].  The basic idea is for local communities
through the youth, to map and understand the local hazards and risk
and enable the local community to respond to the situation.

One tool they will is of course, OpenStreetMap [1] and they are
looking for OSM contributors to participate in the project.  The
initial area for the Philippines is Mindanao.  If anyone here is
interested to join the project as trainors, facilitators, mappers.
You can contact Leonard Doyle (ldoyle at iom.int) of IOM.

@Leonard, please update this list if you have further info about the
project not mentioned in the post and prezi slides. Good luck with
your project!
