As of year 2000, there were 40 to 50 violent incidents against humanitarian workers every year. Since then, the number of incidents has risen to about 200 per year and better information and communication make the work safer. And here comes the iTRACK solution. The new technology must be ready by 2019.
On the 11th of July 2017, Heide Lukosch, developer of the iTRACK Board Game and researcher at TU Delft gave an interview and presented the project at the Dutch national news.
During humanitarian disasters and crises, the access to the information and communication is critical. To show the potential of technology to support humanitarian missions particularly in conflicts, the Board Game has been developed.
