Tweet roundup | Resilience, bioterrorism and 3D printing edition

contributor: Rob Goodier

We present our twice-monthly snapshot of interesting tweets in the technology for global development space. For up-to-the-minute updates from E4C on Twitter, please follow us at @Engineer4Change.

The World Bank’s site includes descriptions of technologies that can make a difference in developing economies while mitigating climate change at the same time.

MIT researchers founded Little Devices to create medical technology for use in developing countries. We’ve seen earlier versions of their bicycle pump nebulizer and the latest has caught the attention of Jordan Schermerhorn, one of our contributing editors.

Lida Raftree, one of our contributing editors, tweeted a thought from the #tech4resilience conference.

Here’s an interesting perspective on bioterrorism: what if it’s already here, but in a guise that we haven’t suspected? Jordan Schermerhorn’s article proposes that health insecurity is a consequence of war and terrorism that is more deadly than potential bioterrorist attacks. It’s an interesting read.

We tweeted highlights from our webinar on 3D printing in developing countries.

A useful online tool.

Love this.
