Join the CIFAR Alliance ‘Brown Bag’ webinar organised in collaboration with the GSMA on Thursday, 20 June 2024. We will be exploring the critical role of mobile and digital technologies in addressing biodiversity loss and its impacts on ecosystems and human well-being, especially in low- and middle-income countries. 

Drawing insights from the GSMA’s recent publication, “The Nature Tech Nexus: Bridging Biodiversity and Business” the Brown Bag will highlight how biodiversity loss poses significant threats to various sectors and how the GSMA’s ClimateTech programme is enabling Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to develop sustainable business models and implement biodiversity action.
