The lack of (online) content in the native languages of developing countries is a major hurdle for inclusive development. Both information overload and insufficiency in domains that are key to sustainable development. Difficulty of retrieving livelihood-focused content via search engines. Lack of inclusive discourse and debate as people with differing opinions visit fora that confirm their own opinion; The inability of governments to communicate effectively with their constituencies.
#tagcoding maps a multi-dimension topic space onto distinctive alpha-numerical #tags, a full set for each dimension of each development challenge. Geo-codes support the localization of topic #tags: for a country, a state, a local government unit. Online tools, including search engines, support a rapid look up of #tags, coded and #tag2wiki curated content, in any language, globally. A coding #tag empowers partnerships with a cross-language channel for addressing specific local challenges.
