Local drone experts, entrepreneurs and engineers from 23 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Oceania have signed this Charter on Equal Opportunity & Inclusion regarding the use of drones for social good such as humanitarian aid, public health, sustainable development and nature conservation.
The Charter calls on both regulators and international organizations to enable not hinder equal opportunity and inclusion. Give local experts the opportunity to lead and participate meaningfully. Trust that local knowledge and local ownership are key for sustainable impact. This is particularly important in the context of disaster management. First responders to disasters by definition are — and always have been — local actors.
We would be grateful for your help in disseminating this Charter widely should you agree with these principles. Thank you kindly.
