Afternoon Breakout Panels - Innovative Use of Technology
2:30 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Peter Levine, principal associate at Abt, shared insights and lessons learned from the Participatory Mapping and Planning Projects 1 and 6 (PMaP-1 and 6), managed by Abt Associates. The projects have empowered Indonesian village teams to map boundaries, indentify resources, and settle land disputes through the use of drones and data management technologies.

We hope you had an opportunity to stop by Abt’s booth to see a drone up close and learn more about Abt’s innovative use of surveying and data management technologies that gave Indonesian communities ownership of their boundary data and mapped over 2,000 natural and cultural resources throughout the island nation.
