The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Limited Capacity seats available

This study consists of identifying households with Unsatisfied Basic Needs (UBN) in World Vision's Nueva Frontera Operative Center (OC) located in western Honduras, one of the poorest regions of the country. This Operative Center covers two municipalities of two departments, Nueva Frontera in Santa Barbara and Florida in Copan. The WV DME team and the Nueva Frontera OC team, collected the data for this study using an ODK mobile data collection solution, Lot Quality Assurance Sampling (LQAS) methodology was used for determining the households under study and then Geographic Information Systems (GIS) was used to perform spatial analysis. It was important to identify the OC's most vulnerable children in the aim to target better assistance in the area. This study is based on the UBN methodology as suggested by CEPAL (Feres and Mancero 2001) which includes access to a househould with minimal standard conditions, access to basic services, access to basic education, economical capacity to achieve minimal consumption but it also suggests the incorporation of other variables. From the analysis of the data, an UBN Index was calculated first by dimension. The addition of the dimensions under study resulted in a total UBN Index for Nueva Frontera OC and finally mapped from the interpolation of each dimension.
