Social good organization: Health Environment

Health In Harmony (HIH) is a climate solution. HIH is an international nonprofit dedicated to reversing global heating, understanding that rainforests are essential for the survival of humanity. Using the innovative process of Radical Listening, we collaborate with the experts - rainforest communities in Borneo, Madagascar, and Brazil - to create the change the planet needs. We address the primary drivers of deforestation – for example, access to healthcare and alternative livelihoods – to ensure that rainforest communities can live in balance with their ecosystems.

Organization's projects

Project name Summary Status Social impact area
Help design visualization of real-time satellite analyses of forest cover change and carbon Health In Harmony has partnered with Woods Hole Research Institute in Massachusetts and Gunung Palung National Park in West Kalimantan Indonesia to test a pilot of real-time satellite visualizations of active logging within the boundary of the park and changes in carbon density of the forest over time. However, before doing all the back-end scientific analysis, we would like the help of a user interface expert to help us determine what would be the most effective way to display this data. Knowing where we want to get, will help us determine which data to create. This is not a trivial point given the volume of data which will need to be analyzed on an on-going basis. New Environment
Visualize Madagascar Baseline Survey Data Health In Harmony conducted a baseline census survey in November of 2019 in the communities around Monombo National Park. Questions were asked about the health status of communities, their use of the forest, and their economic well-being. We contracted a Malagasi data company to do the survey which included an analysis. However, the data has been presented only in long tables which is not easy to visualize and difficult to present to our donors. Beautiful visualization and some additional analyses would be amazing.
