Client: Alec Christie (ICCCAD liaison) <>

Local people in rural areas have valuable knowledge about climate change effects and adaptation, but it is not straightforward to integrate their observations into scientific evidence and policy frameworks. Your task is to create a trusted infrastructure that integrates reports from local people (including photos and voice recordings to be translated as necessary) into a secure evidence blockchain. The client tools must run on low-end android phones, and be accessible to people with low literacy. Processes for authentication and standardisation should respect traditional authority, cultures and rights of indigenous people, and expert advice will be available from the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) in Dhaka.
