Placing Communities at the Heart of Humanitarian and Environmental Drone Use:
Issues, Challenges and Opportunities
This project aimed to acknowledge the diverse existing and emerging drone usages by scientists, the state, NGOs and businesses in Malawi, and assess how communities are, and can be, made, inclusive to these practices. This overarching aim shaped the project’s activities, each intended to produce in a collaborative fashion new knowledges on drones.
