Amphan: analyzing experiences of extreme weather events using online data International Water Management Institute Education Cyclone Amphan made landfall in South Asia on May 20, 2020. It was the most damaging storm in the history of the Indian Ocean, rendering hundreds of thousands of people homeless, ravaging agricultural lands and causing billions of dollars in damage. How were people affected by the storm? What were the responses of individuals, governments, corporates and NGOs? How was it covered by local, national and international media, as opposed to individuals' accounts? Who has created the dominant narratives of Cyclone Amphan; and whose voices go unheard? We aim to use online data -- such as Twitter posts, news headlines and research publications -- to analyze people's experiences of Cyclone Amphan. Project scoping Started
Putting a face to IllinoisLegalAid.org's anonymous users Illinois Legal Aid Online (ILAO) Education IllinoisLegalAid.org will be used by over 3 million people in 2020. With a average website session of just under two minutes, Illinois Legal Aid Online (ILAO) has little understanding of the impact it makes on its users. ILAO seeks to gain insights from its website user data about who it serves, how it serves them, and how it can improve its services. Project scoping done_all Completed
