Event description
Can you help solve global natural resources crimes?

About this event

We have postponed the Hackathon to end January/Start February 2022. Stay tuned!

The illicit exploitation of natural resources has become the largest financial driver of conflict globally. Whether illegal harvesting of coal and fuel, mining, logging, wildlife crime or human smuggling, the exploitation of natural resources is playing an increasingly large part in destabilizing safety, peace and development. The Atlas of Illicit Flows by Interpol identifies more than 1.000 global smuggling routes used to funnel money into and resources out of conflict areas across the world. Painfully, an increasing share of this money is coming from Europe and the western world with illegally exploited goods flowing back in.

A major challenge in solving the illicit flow of illegal natural resources is the lack of a global supply chain that can intervene at the point of origin due of resources. Due to a lack of data there is insufficient insight making it hard to track illicit goods as they are mixed with legally produced, sustainable resources.

In this hackathon we will bring together global banks and tech companies to co-create solutions to combat illegal natural resource exploitation.

Do you have an idea for:

• Building trustworthy data sources?

• Tracking the global flow of resources, for instance using satellite imagery?

• Establishing a reliable first point in the global supply chain of natural resources?

• Or just another crazy take on how to stop the financing of illegal exploitation of resources?

Then join us for a day of working towards solving one of the world’s biggest problems.
