How will your code change the world?
To facilitate the development and launch of innovative, life-changing open technology, IBM has created Code and Response.
This $25 million, four-year initiative will build, fortify, test, and launch open technology solutions that help communities needing critical aid. Our focus for 2019 is Disaster Preparation and Recovery, with an emphasis on health and wellness.
As a launching point for open source programs like Call for Code and Clinton Global Initiative University, Code and Response will support the entire process of creating solutions for those most in need.

Puerto Rico lures tech developers as hurricane season looms
One team of developers backed by IBM is sticking transmitters to trees with Velcro as part of a hardware and software system they invented called Project OWL.
With support of the IBM Code and Response™ initiative, Project Owl recently tested its a two-part hardware/software solution in Puerto Rico, where communities are still recovering from Hurricane Maria.
OWL creates an offline communication infrastructure during natural disasters, giving those in need a simple and reliable interface to request assistance from authorities. Watch this video for a behind-the-scenes look at Project Owl's pilot and see how code is turned into community action.
