Science and technology play a key role in achieving transformational change. This is especially crucial in the case of accelerating global climate actions.This change includes the adoption of new technologies into existing programs or projects; and upscaling of existing technological interventions for impact enhancement. The adoption of new green solutions can open new markets for innovative technologies that mobilise private sector engagement in the scale required. A couple of key emerging digital technologies that climate change programs and projects can leverage are blockchain, artificial intelligence and internet of things-powered applications.

The objectives of this side event are to understand:

  • Key emerging digital technologies used in climate change
  • The value adds of Blockchain and other emerging technologies in the Paris Agreement (e.g.Operationalising Articles 6, 9 and 13)
  • Bangladesh’s vision in leveraging technology for climate action
  • Challenges in leveraging these emerging digital technologies
