Why take on climate change?

As the United Nations states, “The impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale. Without drastic action today, adapting to these impacts in the future will be more difficult and costly.”

Climate change is felt strongly in areas where there are the greatest concentrations of developers, such as the more turbulent monsoons affecting India, melting ice caps in the Alps of Europe, and the proliferation of wildfires in North America.

Our panel of experts gives an overview of how satellite imagery and data help lay an information foundation from which developers can draw to create solutions to some of the most pressing issues facing the world today. This data from space levels the playing field by making global challenges local and offering solutions to combat climate change that are more fair and equitable. These innovations are grounded in IBM’s commitment to trust in data and trust in models.
