Forum Session
Frontier technologies for climate change
Wednesday, September 11, 2019, 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM, Room 2 - Cube

Frontier technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, additive manufacturing, renewable energy and big data have enormous potential to drive prosperity and protect the planet. New technologies can be used to leapfrog existing solutions and bring transformative benefits to people, the economy and the environment, significantly accelerating efforts to reach the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. How can frontier technologies be harnessed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, foster low-carbon, climate-resilient sustainable growth and adapt to climate change? Which solutions have the greatest potential positive impact? What government policies and regulatory approaches can best ensure economic development and sustainability are equitable and available to all? How important is international cooperation in driving technology transfers, national innovation and harmonization of technology standards on the new frontiers?
