Toward a Livable Planet Observatory
Nagaraja Rao Harshadeep, PhD | The World Bank
03.11.24 @ 1 p.m. ET
HYBRID – 33/H114 or Teams

Since 1947, the World Bank has funded over 12,000 projects in every major area of development. Among its top priorities today are climate and food security. Drawing on over 25 years of experience at the World Bank, Dr. Harshadeep will present perspectives on the use of modern technology on a range of topics, including environment, ecosystems, biodiversity, pollution, blue economy, water, agriculture and food security, climate resilience, climate migration and more. Dr. Harshadeep will then discuss related open data initiatives and an evolving approach toward a “Livable Planet Observatory” for global societal benefit.

Dr. Nagaraja Rao Harshadeep (Harsh) is Lead Environmental Specialist and Global Lead for Disruptive Technology in the Environment, Natural Resources & Blue Economy Global Practice Group at the World Bank. He has worked on transboundary watersheds, integrated basin planning and management, environment, critical ecosystems, and climate resilience, monitoring systems, public-domain data access, modern earth observation, analytical/decision support tools, and other emerging technologies.
