Climate Smart Technology: What are the innovations we need for tackling the climate crisis?

Climate Smart Technology: What are the innovations we need for tackling the climate crisis?

Date: Oct 24, 2022

Time: 20:00 to 21:15 (KST/GMT+9)


“Having the right policies, infrastructure and technology in place to enable changes to our lifestyles and behaviour can result in a 40-70% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This offers significant untapped potential” said the IPCC Working Group III Co-Chair Priyadarshi Shukla. In 2022, the IPCC report was the first IPCC report to include a section on how approaches to innovation and technology will be at the core of our fight to solve the climate crisis.

This session will feature different actors from the technology and innovation space from across the gamut while focusing on the question of uptake and utility of innovation in the countries in which GGGI is currently working.

Key questions include: what are the key innovations for climate mitigation and adaptation? How can we mainstream technologies into the planning and funding mobilization efforts of organizations such as GGGI?
