Communication and Documentation During Shutdowns

Submitted Feb 12, 2020

In the past month India witnessed a lot of frequent shutdowns in various parts of the country to “maintain law and order” situation. During these shutdowns the social media channels and solidarity groups shared various tools for communication and documentation. The conversations around these tools happened in the digital sphere and were shortlived. There is need for documentation that is specific to the indian eco-system.

What do we need in such tools ?
Outcome: A blog post / document sharing these learnings.

Requirements
