: Nepalgunj Sub-Metropolitan City Building
23 January to 24 January
Kathmandu Living Labs is assisting Nepalgunj Sub-Metoropolitan City in realizing the goal of open municipal governance. To this effect, KLL and the municipal governance are working towards creating a free, digital map infrastructure of Nepalgunj Sub-Metropolitan City.
Training of the first batch of 15 local digital interns start on Jan 23. These digital volunteers will be trained on the concept and tools of open mapping. Following the training, they will go to field and collect locational and other details of entities such as roads, hospitals, educational institutions, government offices, private businesses, etc. The so collected data will be used as an information layer in the new Sub-Metropolitan City website (currently under development).
KLL has a standing MoU with Nepalgunj Sub-Metropolitan City and this event is one of the many scheduled plans and events.
