ABOUT THE CLEAN AIR CATALYST PROJECT The Clean Air Catalyst (“Catalyst”) is a new flagship program launched by the US Agency for International Development (USAID). The intention of the program is to accelerate clean air solutions by working with communities around the world to identify and raise awareness of local pollution sources, and to build focused coalitions which deliver interventions leading to cleaner, healthier air. The five-year program will help build capacity for tailored, self-reliant solutions that cut air pollution and improve human health in developing countries. Indore, India and Jakarta, Indonesia are two of the three cities where the project is being piloted. ABOUT RUMOR TRACKING The Internews Rumor Tracking Methodology is a way to address misinformation in a consistent and continuous way, in different contexts. It is a process to collect community data (questions, concerns or rumors heard) in a semi-structured way to allow any topics to surface without leading the discussion towards a desired outcome. All Rumor Tracking projects involve a feedback loop: the data is collected, analyzed to understand the fears and hopes behind those rumors, and actionable information that addresses the concerns is shared back with the community. While Rumor Tracking is a methodology, it consists of a few basic tools: opened ended questionnaires, a spreadsheet or database, a strong involvement of the affected population, and using the most trusted and accessible mechanisms for sharing information back to the community, such as radio programs, narrowcasting, listening groups, SMS hotlines, bulletins etc..
