Welcome to the Weekend Update. Our goal with this weekly post is to share quick updates about online education, networking and collaboration opportunities and resources for the open source enterprise blockchain community.
If you have suggestions for resources or events that we should spotlight in a future Weekend Update, let us know here using #HLWeekendUpdate.
Webinar: How Blockchain Can Build A More Resilient, Effective Future For the Humanitarian Sector
The humanitarian sector has typically relied upon often outdated, proprietary technology solutions for managing and releasing aid, creating a risk of data loss, errors and duplication of efforts across organisations. The last year was overwhelmed by the Covid-19, and the coronavirus pandemic threatens aid budgets. Panelists from Emerge, Kiva and AID:Tech will discuss how distributed ledger technologies could be the solution to deliver significant savings for aid organisations and donors while offering potential to improve monitoring and evaluation processes. The webinar will make the case for investing in DLT to unlock innovation in the humanitarian and development aid sectors. With the increasing threats such as pandemics, climate change and natural disasters, we are here to advocate for a more distributed, efficient, and resilient future.
Tune on Thursday, July 8, at 7:30 AM PDT. For more information and to register, go here.
