Highlighting Digital Innovation from the Arab Region, the WSA Digital Arab Innovation Forum brought together digital entrepreneurs and content developers from the Arabic speaking world, demonstrating the richness and diversity of Arabic digital content and strengthening regional networks and collaboration. Connect for impact - the best WSA applications from the Arabic region came together to present their solutions to an international Jury, and get intense mentoring on their projects.

How can digital solutions and IoT support small holder farmers in the Arab Region? WSA Arab winners NileBot and Smart Logger offer innovative solutions for water quality and the water preservation.

 

The Jury was in agreement, those agricultural projects are not only innovative, they also provide a clear contribution to tackling the UN SDG's. Just like Deaf Pedia from Qatar, a solution that allows deaf people to translate arab dialect audio and videoinput in real life into sign language using an avatar.

 

Also from Qatar , QChain powers cybersecurity with blockchain power.  One thing the Jury was adament about, the importance of regional Arab content to be preserved and accsessible, just like the Syrian Manarti, an animated storytelling tool for kids using AR. Daraty, also from Syria, is is an interactive toolkit that teaches children the basics of electronics and improves their problem-solving skills.

 

But the Arab Region proofs also a strong focus on business solutions, such as Jobi.ma, a job recruitment and matching platform from Morocco. Citizen Up, also from Morocco, offers solutions for companies that have no programs for CSR with sustainable volunteering solutions.
