  • Climate change: Countries and communities around the world are engaged in climate resilience, adaptation, and mitigation efforts. AI can help in areas such as:
    • Extreme weather and climate modeling
    • Sustainable land-use change
    • Ecosystem services (including carbon sequestration and afforestation/reforestation)
    • Resilience to extreme-event impacts (droughts, floods, disasters, etc.)
  • Agriculture: Agriculture must transition to a more sustainable model with lower environmental impact. AI can help in areas such as:
    • Land-use planning and management
    • Precision agriculture
    • Natural resource conservation
    • Sustainable supply chains
    • Climate-resilient agriculture
    • Water efficiency and management
  • Biodiversity: Species are going extinct at alarming rates, driving the decay of key ecosystem services like pollination on which humans depend. AI can help in areas like:
    • Habitat protection and restoration
    • Sustainable trade
    • Invasive species and disease control
    • Pollution control
    • Realizing natural capital
  • Water: Management of the world’s freshwater supply needs to anticipate climate change impacts as well as increasing demand. AI can help in areas such as:
    • Extreme-event impacts on water supply (droughts, floods, disasters, etc.)
    • Water supply (including catchment control)
    • Water quality and sanitation
