In this talk, A/Prof. Hao Tang introduces us to the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) programme, which is a jointly-led initiative by NASA and the University of Maryland that provides the first high-resolution spaceborne lidar-based dataset for the 3D structure of the Earth's surface, and discusses some of its potential applications for nature-based climate solutions research.
Singapore’s efforts to establish itself as a carbon services and trading hub has drawn keen interest across industries. Creating such an ecosystem for carbon-related services in Singapore can greatly support and strengthen Singapore and the region’s transition towards sustainability. This webinar, jointly organised by NUS's Centre for Nature-based Climate Solutions, Energy Studies Institute, and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, discusses carbon services, the industry, and its role in addressing climate change in Singapore.
In the final webinar of our series with The HEAD Foundation, panellists discussed climate change and COVID-19’s effects on the Asia-Pacific region’s food security, with disasters, flooding, and lockdowns putting supply chains and food supplies at risk.
