Brief Background

  • Natural resources are important to support the growing population and economic growth. However, overexploitation and illegal exploitation have resulted in rapid loss and degradation of these important resources. We lose about $1-2 trillion annually due to illegal fishing, logging, and wildlife trade.
  • Conventional management of these resources did not appear to be successful as natural resources continue to deplete. Can we stop these?
  • With global enabling policies such as UN SDGs, UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, and UN Paris Agreement; impact financing; data and technologies availability; and new societal trends toward Sustainability; there are opportunities to manage our Natural Resources better
  • However, Innovating approach, out-of-the-box and disruptive thinking are needed.
  • NAREMATech or NAtural REsources MAnagement Technovation Hack aims to bring innovative technology solutions for managing the natural resources at speed and scale with transparent technologies and impact financing.
