We speak to Tendai Pasipanodya and Hans-Peter Thamm from the Drones Doing Good Alliance.
Tendai is a systems change expert with 17 years of experience in identifying, developing, supporting and co-creating innovative solutions to tackling development challenges. Hans-Peter is a drone manufacturer who developed one of the first ever VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drones in the world.
Both guests discuss the importance of localisation and the value of local manufacturing of drones. They also discuss what it might mean to encourage more local solutions in order to grow drone ecosystems in the future.
