What climate adaptation technology looks like

Heather Clancy of GreenBiz reports on climate adaptation startups.

The C3 Take
  • While climate strategies largely focus on mitigation, adaptation is a powerful and necessary component to reducing risk.
  • Venture capital firms are beginning to invest resources into startups that are helping humans adapt to a changing climate.
  • One such company is Firecast, which uses AI to track and predict wildfire patterns.
  • Free market innovation is playing a pivotal role in addressing climate change.

“One established data platform is Firecast, intended primarily for government agencies. It’s an initiative managed by Conservation International that was instrumental in tracking fires in Amazonia and Indonesia in 2019. Now, a growing number of entrepreneurial startups propose using artificial intelligence and a range of sensing options that run the gamut from cameras to drones and other devices to help communications and corporations get a better handle on wildfire management.”
