The role of finance in climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies is undisputed.
On the one hand, most vulnerable countries are fighting for developed nations commitments on climate financing for adaptation and discussing liability and compensation for “loss and damage” caused by massive floods, devastating wildfires, and rising seas; on the other hand, in Europe, new technical criteria are defining activities that contribute substantially to climate change mitigation and adaptation, opening new opportunities for innovation regarding green assets financing.
In both contexts, Earth observation can play a role.
The finance theme will be one of those on stage at next year’s Living Planet Symposium, one of the largest events worldwide dedicated to Earth observation.
You are invited to submit an abstract (deadline 26 November 2021) to gain the opportunity to be a speaker in the dedicated session at the symposium.
You may like to join the discussion on emerging concepts that combine FinTech/DeFi innovation, EO and GNSS, and end-to-end orchestration of different technologies to collect data about natural objects, their identities, and their entire life-cycle in order to optimise industrial operations and build completely novel investment instruments; or to address challenges and opportunities for EO in innovative risk financing solutions for climate shocks and other complex risks.
Any of the following two sessions might be the most relevant for you:
The Living Planet Symposia bring together scientists and researchers from all over the world to present and discuss the latest findings on Earth science and advances in Earth observation technologies. Moreover, these extraordinary events also offer unique forums for decision-makers to be better equipped with information, for partnerships to be forged and formalised, for space industries to join the conversation, for students to learn, and for all to explore the concepts of New Space such as the digital transformation and commercialisation.
