The World Humanitarian Summit will be attended by thousands of people from all around the world. In Istanbul, the UNDP security team are working to keep all attendees safe in a highly complex logistical operation.

Building on UNDP’s use of what3words in the field in many regions across Africa, the regional security team in Turkey are using it to communicate across the event.

Drivers and security team members have downloaded the free what3words application, which enables them to simply describe the exact location of assets, people and even any incidents that arise.

As world leaders and delegates flood into the International Convention Centre in Turkey, what3words is supporting an efficient and effective security response.

what3words has been used to coordinate emergency response at events like SuperBowl 50 and Glastonbury and others and is used by humanitarian and development organisations around the world to better document and respond to situations.

what3words has also been invited to exhibit at the summit as part of the innovation marketplace.
