Digital transformation can play a major role in addressing climate change and biodiversity loss in low- and middle-income countries. A “twin transition” approach recognizes this large and untapped role of technology and data to drive sustainability: instead of thinking about digitalization (using technology) and sustainability (taking care of the planet) separately, a twin transition strategy believes that these two changes can work together.
DGIx aims to leverage the aforementioned interconnectedness between digitalization and climate change by utilizing the potential of ventures and consortiums developing digital tools for climate action in the following areas:
  • Adaptation: reducing potential damages and vulnerability associated with climate change.
  • Mitigation: curbing and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Resilience: anticipating, preparing, and recovering while incurring minimal damages.
