“Digital technologies should serve those who need them most. This is why we are happy to announce our new initiative aimed to educate climate action NGOs on the use of digital tech for immutable and transparent CO2 and pollution measurement”. — said Anita Mujumdar, а 24-year old Russian-Indian climate technology leader.

On December 5 at the official side event by UNFCCC “How digital technologies can support climate action” a new educational initiative for climate NGOs was announced — “Public blockchain for open sensors networks”.

Within the project Evercity and Robonomics network will provide a blockchain framework to all organizations who want to use smart meters to measure air, water and soil pollution and publish this data on blockchain. First participating NGOs will get free smart sensors, while all other organizations will receive free technical support to connect their own sensors to the network. The framework with be built with Parity substrate technology and based on DAO IPCI open source public blockchain protocol that made the first ever blockchain-based carbon credit transaction.
