Unique opportunity to learn more about Nature-Based Solutions to climate change and mitigation-remove: view from South East Asia.
To slow down global warming scientists have calculated that we need to remove 10 Gigatonnes of carbon emissions permanently for the next 10 years and 20 Gigatonnes per year after 2030. Using projects based on nature is an efficient way to start this journey. These projects are based on forestation, soil regeneration, smart agriculture, oceans and rivers and ecosystems. More of these projects need to be funded and developed across the world to decrease the detrimental impacts of global warming. This webinar is a unique opportunity to learn how to start and run such projects from Dr Somika Bhatnagar, a scientist and sustainability specialist from Singapore.
With presentation from:
Somika is a prominent detail and result-oriented scientist, with 20 years of experience in Life Science, including over 15 years in the lead and mentoring teams of research staff and scholars. Expert in biotechnology, tissue culture, molecular biology, genetic transformation, production of natural compounds in cell cultures and nanotechnology. Extensive research experience in translational plant research areas like biotech crop development, agroforestry, carbon sequestration, conservation of endangered plant species, biodiversity enhancement, green nanotechnology, and in vitro production of economically important bioactive compounds for cosmetic, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries. Successful in taking research from labs to large-scale sustainable commercial setups, with production capacity of over 1 million tissue culture plants per year leading to a spin-off company. Natural inclination towards teaching has enabled to consistently train and groom students and research staff every year during their internship and research. The research work has gained international recognition in terms of presentations.
KlimatelinK webinars are free to join live and will be made available for replay on the KlimatelinK App a week after the event.
