“It is critical to use innovation and technology to better recognize and analyze climate risk to sustain adjustment and adaptability in our changing environment. The Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Advanced Data Analytics overall can efficiently address climate risk. In recent times we depend extensively on real-time data for effective decision making. Climate concerns are no exception. Data analytics as an instrument is anticipated to assist in mitigating, adapting, and building robustness to climate conundrums,” said Pratap Raju, Founder, Climate Collective.
“The event is part of ESG Start-up Week organized by AICGIM which looks to bring about conversations on environment, social, and governance-based issues. Startups will be crucial in the development of these new technologies and solutions”, said Rajesh Joshi, CEO, AICGIM.
Indian citizens with knowledge in the field of data analytics with regards to climate solutions were eligible to participate as a team or individually.
