BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE
GreenAlert is a Web platform which allows users to track environmental impact assessments (EIA) in their areas. Citizens can find their location to see the details of an EIA: the official ID, the project description, status of the development, and the government body responsible for authorising and monitoring the development.
Citizens can also register for personalised alerts by just click the # on the right-hand corner of the map and GreenAlert will send them real-time notifications by email or SMS. As of October 2018 #GreenAlert had tracked about 8 688 EIAs around the country (Last updated 2017)
The African Civic Tech Atlas is a work in progress (and a labour of love) for us but we may miss some initiative that needs updating. If your initiative needs to be updated on the database, kindly follow the instructions on the “Update Your Initiative” tab.
