Climate Action

Developing Effective Solutions to Bridge the Adaptation Gap

With a growing set of climate change-induced impacts affecting human and environmental systems, adaptation to these changes is increasingly needed. However, society in general is mostly unaware of the required actions beyond mitigation. Stakeholders lack a ‘toolkit’ that provides resources on analytical, financial and operational technologies, particularly related to adaptation. This is particularly true for blockchain technology, despite its potential to offer groundbreaking solutions for the climatically vulnerable.

The Social Impact and Sustainability Working Group is organising an event in connection with the release of its latest paper Blockchain and the Climate Adaptation Imperative: Developing Effective Solutions to Bridge the Adaptation Gap.

Register here if you want to attend this event.
