Skillshare: Blockchain for Climate and Sustainable Development – Insights From the Climate Chain Coalition and the BLOC Consortia Demonstrators

*Please note that the Skillshare lunch is members-only.

In order to leverage the full capacity and to capture the full benefits of blockchain, a concerted and coordinated approach at the nexus of technology, industry and policy is required. In fact, the key obstacle to scaleable blockchain adoption is about getting companies, regulators and stakeholders to cooperate and collaborate. 

 

This session addresses the importance of ecosystem development for Blockchain solutions and will  address how blockchain and related digital technologies can connect to hard won climate and SDG frameworks, certificates and carbon market mechanisms to help scale investments and impact.

 

Takeaways for Participants

  • Challenges and opportunities in current blockchain and Climate-SDG landscape
  • Overview of technical and policy issues
  • Issues related to peer to peer and reward based blockchain approaches 
  • Linking sensors, MRV, data, with certification and reporting and regulatory frameworks
  • Scoping industry-led problem definition 
  • Demonstrator sourcing, planning and building
  • Insights into current work being undertaken by international organizations, coalitions and consortia
