Impact Programme (I): The Amazon, Agritech and FoodTech – The Trifecta Saviours of Human Survival?
February 28, 2022 @ 3:20 pm - 4:00 pm CET
The Amazon, which extends to 9 countries in South America, is the largest rainforest in the world. Home to an abundant biodiverse ecosystem and its human inhabitants, it is disappearing at an alarming rate. Not only do we rely on it as a natural carbon sequester, but the thousands of different natural species are of integral use, e.g. for their medicinal properties too. If humanity looks after it, it will look after us. A session to interlink human/commercial activities in different parts of the world and their effects on the Amazon Rainforest. An exploration of initiatives happening there to protect it and its people; What role do forests and nature play in regulating our climate and in therefore helping the fight against increasing Green House Gas (GHG) emissions? What does it mean for our food supplies? What does it mean for natural ecosystems at large and the climate? How can FinTech and AgriTech support a healthier Amazon and healthier world? What does it mean for the Paris Agreement and attainment of the SDGs?
