How WWT's AI for Good is Fueling Climate Innovation at COP28 

World Wide Technology (WWT) launches an AI for Good initiative at COP28 in Dubai, aiming to support one million climate tech entrepreneurs in driving technological innovation for sustainability. Successful applicants will be incubated in WWT's Advanced Technology Center. Omar Mir, WWT's President, highlights the global decline in climate tech investment but notes a 628% YoY growth in the UAE since 2018, with $6 billion invested in regional climate tech over the last decade. The initiative collaborates with partners like Pearson and Open Innovation to offer an online education program. Accenture's report raises concerns about achieving Net Zero goals, emphasizing the potential of AI but urging support for climate solution startups to meet COP28 targets. Despite challenges, WWT's initiative symbolizes hope in addressing urgent environmental issues for a sustainable future.
