AI for the future of climate prediction

Next week we will be in Geneva to delve into AI’s contribution to climate action. We’ll cover topics from eco-friendly AI technologies and standards to disaster management. The discussion will outline a plan of action and activities aimed at creating a greener world.

16:50 – 17:05 | AI for Natural Hazard Management

Over its three-year lifetime, the Focus Group on AI for Natural Disaster Management (FG-AI4NDM), convened by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), World Meteorological Organization (WMO), and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), has laid the groundwork for standards (producing three technical reports, a roadmap, a glossary, and a large language model based tool) and supported capacity sharing. In the future, there are plans to build on these outcomes by exploring complementary technologies for natural hazard management across a range of different disaster types. A Horizon-funded 3-yr project called Mediterranean and pan-European forecast and early warning system against natural hazards (MedEWSa) will apply the best practices developed by FG-AI4NDM and the potential of AI will be ascertained for decision support, multi-hazard forecast and impact assessment, risk transfer, and outreach, in regions of different coping capacities. The outcomes of this project will provide important insights into the versatility of AI solutions.
