The AI for Climate Global Forum brings together experts from the fields of AI, conservation, disruptive technologies, economy, public policy and more, to explore and discuss the power of AI to advance the Sustainable Development Goals and the Global Climate Agenda.

our thematic TRACKs

AI for Biodiversity

Climate change and biodiversity loss are two of the most pressing challenges of our time, and they must be addressed together since they are heavily interconnected.

 

The use of Artificial Intelligence for the monitoring, management, and preservation of species and ecosystems is a powerful way to tackle the extinction of endangered plants and animals, as well as to accelerate effective conservation and restoration efforts in biodiversity hotspots and priority ecosystems.

 

The sessions of this thematic area will be focused on Wildlife Preservation and Ecosystem Restoration with the use of AI and other frontier technologies.

Sessions

  • AI for Wildlife Protection

  • AI for Ecosystem Restoration

AI for Water

The use of Artificial Intelligence can power intelligent and more efficient water usage to optimize resource use, operational costs, and overcome technical limitations, as well as increase the potential to ensure safe access to clean water where it is needed the most.

Also, the use of AI systems can help us address issues related to the large-scale impact that pollution, overfishing, greenhouse gasses emissions, and global warming have made on our oceans. 

This thematic area will deepen on some of the most innovative initiatives regarding water security, as well as ocean conservation and sustainable management of these precious resources.

Sessions

  • AI for Water Quality Monitoring and Treatment

  • AI for a Safe Access to Water

  • AI for Ocean Protection and Management

AI for Net-Zero

Our current electricity grids, transportation, agricultural activities, powered by fossil fuels, prevent us from cutting greenhouse gas emissions, main drivers of global warming, ocean acidification, and we are already seeing the devastating effects of these emissions.

The use of AI systems for data-driven decarbonization strategies can be implemented in many ways around the topics that this thematic area will address. Some ways include a more accurate forecasting supply and demand for operational optimization and energy consumption; synthesis of new materials that can harness energy in a more effective way, models of cities' energy consumption, low-carbon urban planning, monitoring and quantifying emissions from agriculture and forestry practices, and more.

AI for People

We cannot talk about sustainability without including communities as part of the conversation. Even if we place the use of AI systems for environmental good as a primary objective, we must not overlook the potential impacts of these systems on communities.

 

In this thematic area, we will focus on the ethical considerations that should govern all design, deployment, monitoring, and evaluation of an AI system, as well as the financial needs, to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and how, driven by intersectionality and multi-stakeholder collaboration, we can achieve these goals by harnessing AI for social and environmental good.
