  • Challenge: The transition to a low carbon economy will require a vast array of small and large decisions made by a range of governments, corporations and communities. But currently they are forced to make these with only very partial information. To unlock reliable, scaleable, open participatory mechanisms to achieve trust and informed decision making we need to pool the assets and capabilities of researchers in public and private sectors, NGOs, think tanks, academia and earth observation institutions.Solution: Planetary Skin a massive global-monitoring system of environmental conditions enabling effective decision making in the private and public sectors and in communities, with data that is collected from space to airborne to terrestrial sensor networks, analysed, verified and reported over an intelligent web 2.0 platform. Launched March 3rd 2009: a public/private partnership to research and develop a global monitoring system for reporting environmental conditions. When fully developed, it will provide an intelligent, IP-based platform for capturing worldwide environmental data from satellite, airborne, maritime, terrestrial, and other sources to measure, report, and verify information in real time to address mitigation of and adaptation to climate changeThis solution was ranked #17 among TIME Magazine’s 50 best inventions of 2009.Millions of Sensors, Satellites Collect Data Everyday. PS Captures, Analyzes & Interprets Global Environmental DataIt is import to be able to manage, report and verify in order to make sound policy decision that relates to adaptation to and mitigation of climate changeResearch and Develop Ability to:Manage resources productively and effectively Energy, water, land, waste, infrastructure Manage climate change risksRises in sea level, affecting coastal infrastructures Drought-related crop yield reductionsDisease proliferation and pandemics Manage new environmental markets Carbon, water, biodiversity, and more Deforestation is a critical issue, as it contributes some 17-20% of total GHG emissions. When forests disappear the earth loses a carbon sponge. According to one calculation, during the next 24 hours the effect of losing forests in Brazil and Indonesia will be the same as if 8 million people boarded airplanes at Los Angeles and flew to Quito.
