Big Data Innovation for Climate Resilience

This series highlights innovations that were recognized as part of the Big Data Innovation Challenge on climate resilience-- a global call for data solutions to address increasingly pressing issues surrounding climate resilience in specific sectors: Food Security, Nutrition, Forests and Watersheds.

The Challenge was jointly created by the World Bank’s Big Data, Climate Change and Development Economics Data teams in close collaboration with an advisory group that included global experts from the World Economic Forum, NASA, the UN’s Global Pulse, the US State Department, and the World Food Program. Winners and finalists were selected through a multi-round evaluation process that involved close to 40 judges, including data scientists and sector specialists.
