                • 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (CAST)
                • Virtual Event


                IETA LIVE Innovators Series - Advanced Technologies Tackling the Twin Crises of Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss - The Asia Pacific Edition

                Co-hosted by IETA, FLINTpro & Cultivo

                Registrations HERE

                The twin crises of climate change and biodiversity loss are inextricably linked. The recent report by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – finds that addressing the synergies between mitigating biodiversity loss and climate change, while considering their social impacts, offers the opportunity to maximize benefits and meet global development goals. 

                In this Workshop, we will hear from CEO entrepreneurs whose ventures use advanced technology to forecast and monitor carbon capture, biodiversity loss and expose other positive attributes for Natural Climate Solutions.
