Webinar: Creating digital solutions to help people and nature thrive – Lessons from the frontline

Friday 9 Jun 2023 | ClimateTech | English | Mobile for Development | NRM | Video | Webinar |

Digital technology offers significant potential to address urgent environmental and social challenges. But too often, well-intentioned digital tools fail to help local people or reach the scale needed to have a meaningful impact on both people and nature. Through our latest research, the GSMA ClimateTech and FCDO-funded Reversing Environmental Degradation in Africa and Asia (REDAA) programmes explore the barriers and opportunities to such solutions. The report presents practical steps for more digital technology to realise its full potential. Watch the webinar to hear first-hand from practitioners who shared their experiences and lessons learned for designing high-impact solutions that empower local communities with tools to help protect their surrounding ecosystems.

• Xiaoting Hou-Jones, International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)
• Jon Trimarco, Fairtree
