Geo for Earth - Episode 4: Why is building resilience and adaptation essential to tackle global challenges?

Posted on: 11/07/2022

Geo for Earth is a podcast series that explores the critical role that location intelligence and space data have in helping us understand our planet and tackle climate change.

Organised by Andy Bennett – Space Lead and Luca Budello – Geospatial Lead at Innovate UK KTN, the eight 40-minute episodes will feature discussions around a specific topic with two guest speakers including policy makers, sector specialists, and emerging thinkers.

It is said that you ‘cannot change what you cannot measure’. Geospatial data has been central to estimating and understanding the current trends, and predicting the effects in climate change. In this episode, we discuss this incredible important role that data plays supporting resilience and adaptation to climate change, with the help of practical case studies from those deeply affected by it, and those providing solutions.

Guests:

Titus Letaapo – Co-founder, GEO Indigenous Alliance
Andrew Zolli – Chief Impact Officer, Planet

Moderators:

Suzie Imber – Space physicist, University of Leicester
Dallas Campbell – Science and technology TV presenter
