Learn how technology firms are collaborating with the sustainable development space to create innovative new solutions to global development challenges.
Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, spanning countries and continents, societies and generations, sectors and disciplines. Yet crucial data and information on climate issues are still too often amassed - diffuse - in closed silos. Tools like the "Climate Tagger" utilize Linked Open Data to scan, sort, categorize and enrich climate and development-related data, improving efficiency and performance of knowledge management systems and thereby supporting to face the challenges in climate change these days....We have a short window of opportunity these days to solve the arising climate change challenges, and Open Knowledge and Open Data are key factors to face and solve these challenges!
This webinar explains and demonstrates how PoolParty Semantic Suite can be used for information- and data management solutions in the field of sustainable development. Florian Bauer, COO of an international non-profit organisation with the mission to advance clean energy markets in developing countries will explain why "climate smart decisions" require connected knowledge systems and how semantic technologies can help to achieve that. As a concrete use case Quinn Reifmesser of REEEP will present the "Climate Tagger", a tool run by REEEP that helps to connect climate knowledge and that is based on the PoolParty Semantic Suite. Martin Kaltenböck of SWC wil provide the technical background of the Climate Tagger solution on top of PoolParty as well as other best practice examples for using PoolParty for sustainable development. Finally Sukaina Bharwani of SEI will showcase weadapt.org - a well known collaborative learning platform in the field of climate adaptation using Climate Tagger. The Q&A at the end session will allow participants to interact & discuss with the panel.
