Max Edkins at the Global Landscape Forum: Technology and Innovation for Climate Action
Max Edkins, Connect4Climate Acting Manager, gives a talk about Technology and Innovation for Climate Action.
Technological advances will play an increasingly vital role in the accomplishment of a clean and sustainable environment. Connect4Climate, a global partnership program of the World Bank launched in 2011, has worked to direct global political momentum behind climate action. Through innovative public initiatives, Connect4Climate has cultivated awareness of climate at the grass-roots level across a multitude of different sectors.
Their efforts have resulted in a network of over 500 leading experts, technology, and financing providers, institutions, and corporations capable of exploring synergies and acting collectively. The session aims to utilize the strength of the GLF as a forum and community of practice to amplify their message and explain the mission of Connect4Climate.
