Harnessing the Flow of Data: Fintech opportunities for ecosystem management
There are a wealth of new technologies to help us analyse large amounts of data—from the Internet of Things to artificial intelligence and blockchain—that could be adopted by those working in sustainable development to manage our ecosystems better.
This report demystifies those technologies for a broader audience and explores how sustainable development actors may adopt them, flagging some potential risks.
Looking at broad trends in both science and technology, we see how unique approaches to scientific research, like those used at IISD Experimental Lakes Area, could adopt these technologies to help bridge the gap between science and policy.
