PARIS21, together with its partners, is committed to building resilient and modern data ecosystems that harness the value of data for transformative climate action. This conference took place from Tuesday, 05 April, to Wednesday, 06 April, and provided insights into the key challenges and opportunities related to climate change data production and use in low capacity countries, and discuss the potential of an integrated data ecosystems approach.

 

SPring Meetings

 

Climate change is an environmental, social, economic and political concern. The PARIS21 2022 Spring Meetings featured a series of virtual events over the course of two days, convening interdisciplinary experts from diverse backgrounds, policy makers, national statistical offices, civil society and academia to share perspectives and best practices, bridge gaps in institutional knowledge and identify ways for collective data-driven climate action.

As part of the event, PARIS21 presented the new scoping paper Envisioning a climate change data ecosystem - A path to co-ordinated climate action and launched the new PARIS21 podcast Climate change: Behind the numbers, including a first episode with Sony Kapoor, CEO of the Nordic Institute for Finance, Technology and Sustainability, on ESG investment and greenwashing.
