In case of natural disasters such as floods and extreme weather, a fast and secure flow of information is essential for citizens to be able to cope with the situation. Mobile4D is a disaster information and alerting system based on smartphone technology to allow both for timely notification of affected stakeholders and easy and barrier-free crowdsourcing of disaster information on the local level in Lao PDR.

Mobile4D consists of a mobile application for the Android operating system, as well as a web-frontend to enable different administrative layers to send out warnings and provide further information (such as safety advice and contact information for questions/help), as well as a disaster management server that handles incoming warnings and sends out notifications to those in danger. The mobile application also allows for reporting disasters at the place they occur.
