IBM

IBM, in cooperation with the City of Rio de Janeiro, has created a data management center that integrates information from multiple government departments and 30 different city agencies to improve safety and responsiveness to various types of emergency incidents, such as flash floods and landslides.

The Rio Operations Center applies analytic models developed by IBM to predict emergency incidents and help officials manage traffic movement, public transportation, and the efficiency of power and water supplies. The center, for example, can predict heavy rains up to 48 hours in advance.

Since the center was set up in 2010, after a torrential storm caused landslides and flash floods, the new alert system has improved emergency response times by 30 percent.

Baltimore Housing

Vacants to Value is an initiative by the Mayor of Baltimore and the Baltimore Housing Authority to eliminate vacant properties quickly, efficiently and economically through a combination of demolition and rehabilitation.

In neighborhoods with just a few scattered vacant properties, $900 administrative citations are used to incentivize owners to fix their properties or sell them quickly. In severely distressed neighborhoods, the City pursues targeted demolition and greening, so that underutilized properties can be transformed into community assets.

Since the program began at the end of 2010, 1,302 vacant houses have been rehabilitated and 660 more have been demolished. The City plans to tear down 1,500 more vacant properties and renovate another 1,500 by 2016.

The Competitiveness Company

The Competitiveness Company, an NGO focused on improving the lives of underprivileged urban youth, has developed an ornamental fish farming and export project that is offering young people in Jamaica’s most violent inner-city slums a chance to escape poverty and gang life.
