14 November 2018
On Wednesday 14th November, 2018, the world came together to celebrate Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Day, the annual salute to geospatial technology and its power to transform lives.

WWF  - one of the largest conservation organizations in the World through its innovations program PandaLabs is seeking Ideas that address environmental challenges using GIS Technology.

About PandaLabs
Panda Labs is WWF’s decentralized innovation accelerator, supporting new tech and commercial market based solutions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

GIS Technology
Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIST) includes a versatile range of tools and techniques for capturing, analyzing and leveraging spatial information. With each passing year, advances in GIS reveal exciting possibilities for conservation challenges such as natural resource and environmental conservation management, open data, renewable energy and climate change, map publication systems and applications, surveying, and more. Experts make the most of these opportunities by staying up to date as new ways of optimizing and employing GIS technology emerge.

Call for Applications
The objective of the Kenya innovation programme is to establish the enabling conditions for Innovation (soil) in the ecosystem and moreover to run a number innovation processes (shrubs) from ideation, to business modelling, to prototyping with the purpose of creating new solutions that can address key conservation challenges. 
We are calling for individuals from diverse sectors and disciplines to submit GIS ideas/solutions to today’s environmental challenges as part of our Conservation Innovation Challenge.
The submissions will be evaluated by an internal committee and the best innovation will receive further support from PandaLabs.
Submit a description of the solution/innovation via email to: calianji@wwfkenya.org
