Study facilitates understanding of Blockchain benefits for climate funding

A pioneering initiative in an attempt to identify and discuss the contributions that Blockchain technology can offer to climate financing transactions. So may be described the report Blockchain Contributions for Climate Finance – Introducing a Debate”, which has just been published by FGV’s International Intelligence Unit (NPII), in partnership with German think tank Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.

Written by Leonardo Paz (NPII) and Gabriel Aleixo Prata (ITSRio), the report strives to introduce the topic of Blockchain and Climate Financing for non-experts in a systematic and didactic way, in order to facilitate the understanding of both subjects, thus simplifying the relationship between the two.

The report also makes recommendations that can be useful for policymakers, as well as managers and developers of “blockchain products”. The report will be officially launched on October 11, at an event open to the public that will include experts on the subject.
