Had an idea for an app on climate change but missed Apps4Africa?

Believe it or not, but here is your chance!

The World Bank launched a similar competition called Apps for Climate in December right after Apps4Africa, and the application is still open until March 16th, 2012. Even the prizes are almost the same as Apps4Africa, so here’s another chance for a Tanzanian team to win 15000 USD and implement your idea to the market!

If you feel that it would be a good idea to organize a similar brainstorming or entry refinement session as Pamoja Initiatives organized together with us for the Apps4Africa, please let us know! We’ll be happy to do so.

This competition challenges participants to develop software applications related to climate change. The applications should serve to raise awareness, measure progress, or to help in some other way to address the development challenges of climate change. Submissions may be any kind of software application, be it for the web, a personal computer, a mobile handheld device, console, SMS, or any software platform broadly available to the public. The only other requirement is that the proposed application use one or more datasets from the World Bank Data Catalog available at data.worldbank.org or the Climate Change Knowledge Portal at climateknowledgeportal.worldbank.org.
