How 3 words could put 4 billion people without addresses on the map

Our home address marks our place in the world – enabling us to get mail, services and to vote. But there is no fixed addressed for four billion billion people in the world living in urban slums. Until now.

The Current, a Canadian radio program covering important contemporary issues, talks to Chris Sheldrick, founder of What3Words about the system and its state of employment around the world, from Mongolia’s wide-open countryside to massive outdoor music events in the UK.  Chris is followed by Catherine Farvacque-Vitkovic of the World Bank, who describes the world’s many needs for new addresses and the programs undertaken by the World Bank.

Two things are clear: there is a need for addressing everywhere, and there are many viable solutions to the problem.

The recording takes about 24 minutes and is very worth-while.
