    Country-based Pooled Funds (CBPFs) are established by the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator (ERC) when a new emergency occurs or when an existing humanitarian situation deteriorates. They allow donors to pool contributions into single, unearmarked country-specific funds to support humanitarian efforts, and are managed locally under the leadership of the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC). CBPFs allocate funds to the best placed responders (international and national NGOs, UN Agencies, Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement organizations) through an inclusive and transparent process in support of priorities set out in Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP). In 2016, CBPFs were the largest source of direct funding for national NGOs. Currently, there are 18 active CBPFs, which together received a record $706 million in donor contributions in 2016. Recognizing their critical role, the UN Secretary-General's Agenda for Humanity called on donors to increase the proportion of HRP funding channeled through CBPFs to 15 percent by 2018, which would translate to more than $1.9 billion per year.

    GeoThings was funded in 2015, a spin-off company from Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) of Taiwan as the very first technical-oriented social enterprise, focused on information coordination for disaster and emergency preparedness and response. With the investments from the technical industrial leaders, GeoThings started its journey aiming for the development of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as the assistant tool and coordination platform for pre-disaster preparedness, in-disaster response, and post-disaster assessment. Not only cooperating with the regional organizations and non-government organizations, GeoThings actively participates in various international activities/communities and was invited as an expert observer of UN-GGIM, co-worked with OCHA on MicroMappers project, became the member of OGC, and partnered with Mapbox, Planet Labs, Digital Humanitarian Networks (DHN), and Humanitarian OSM Team (HOT). Our major software service, geoBingAn, which means “all the best” in Taiwanese, is an App/Web service platform that is currently used by various organizations and agencies. The geoBingAn service has been adopted by some of the city-level government agencies in Taiwan that allows the citizens to report issues such as street light outage to government, and further extended with Asian Development Bank for regional capacity building to strengthen the disaster resilience and emergency response in Armenia, Bangladesh, Fiji, and Philippines.
