Climate solutions: Inovação e novos negócios para acelerar a descarbonização e ampliar a resiliência
Climate solutions: The role of innovation and start-ups to speed economy wide decarbonization and resilience building
 

Scope: Innovation and technology have a central role in economic development and have been the protagonists of industrial revolutions. OECD countries rely strongly on innovation and technological shifts to reduce GHG emissions and meet the Paris Agreement targets, while developing countries – and specially forested countries – are still pursuing an agenda of the past, reducing illegal deforestation only through command and control measures.

While command and control measures have shown its role in reducing deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon between 2005 and 2012, the gap in legal economic activities that could offer locals jobs and income is recurrently presented as the greatest challenge to end the cycle that leads to unsustainable exploration of forest resources, forest degradation, deforestation and GHG emissions.

This panel will explore the potential of new businesses to offer climate solutions at scale through the business approaches that led to the development of the most vibrant new ventures ecosystems in the planet, bringing lessons from innovation and technology and how to apply them to develop climate innovation ecosystems in the developing world and connecting it to OECD countries to leverage finance to fuel scale up of solutions and new ventures.

Dynamics: Quick presentation followed by informal and informative conversation with the audience. The goal is to have an informal exchange meeting format.
 

Goals:

  1. To share the state of the art of climate innovation ecosystems in the developing world – with a starting point in Brazil – and how they connect to the global innovation ecosystems.
  2. To allow some critical analysis of what can be improved and how to leverage investments to support new ventures from start-up to scale-up phase.
