ShareFair of geospatial tools and applications for climate investments

09 November 2021

As changing climates affect farming conditions across the world, how can geospatial and remote sensing tools help IFAD and others decide on where adaptation investments are best needed and what impact these interventions will have? This question was the central theme of the ShareFair - a virtual ideas marketplace – that IFAD organized on 9 November 2021 as part of the COP26 climate summit. The event featured twenty geospatial tools and applications for climate investments. The recordings of the ten breakout rooms can be found below. The event was opened by representatives from the Government of Indonesia, IFAD’s Senior Management, the Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations and the European Space Agency.
