Huawei, IUCN and Global Partners Highlight Latest Technology for Nature Protection

3rd Tech4Nature Summit held on 50th anniversary of Globe Atmosphere Day

SHENZHEN, China, June five, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — On the 50th anniversary of Globe Atmosphere Day, Huawei and IUCN highlighted clever options for supporting productive and fair management and governance of protected and conserved regions, and the developing value of technologies in tracking threatened species and guarding their organic habitats.

Huawei and IUCN outlined a vision for protected and conserved regions, to leverage digital technologies to assistance attain worldwide biodiversity targets. At the summit, the Wise Protected Places White Paper was launched, jointly created by Huawei, IUCN China and the Chinese Academy of Forestry, to share the blueprint for constructing clever protected regions, primarily based on knowledge from China’s protected regions.

The important to wildlife protection is understanding distribution, behaviors, seasonal trends of species, and how human activities may well influence their patterns. This demands substantial information, which can be difficult to attain provided remote and challenging-to-access regions, frequently exacerbated by intense climate. Early information collection and study efforts relied on scientists going into the field to set up camera traps to capture pictures. These cameras required to be maintained, their batteries replaced, and their memory cards replaced and analyzed time – and labor-intensive processes that often resulted in information and pictures that had been quite a few months old.

Implementing subsequent-generation digital technologies, such as cloud computing, IoT, mobile World-wide-web, huge information, and AI enables genuine-time information acquisition and interaction. This is important to enhancing clever sensing, evaluation and management of species protection and location-primarily based conservation efforts, producing them far more productive and thereby superior at conserving nature.

Considering that 2019, Huawei has worked alongside more than 30 worldwide partners, which includes IUCN, to apply digital technologies to attain productive conservation and restoration outcomes in 46 protected and conserved regions worldwide, from tropical rainforests in China’s Hainan – house to the world’s rarest gibbon, to wetland oasis in Italy, and coral reefs off the east coast of Mauritius.

For instance, beneath Tech4Nature in Mexico exactly where Huawei partners with IUCN, C-Minds, Polytechnic University of Yucatan, Rainforest Connection, and the regional neighborhood of Dzilam has collected far more than 30,000 pictures, 550,000 audio recordings and various video clips of wild animals. An algorithm was created and educated to assistance determine the distinct species, in particular the jaguar, and to date, the group has identified 119 species, which includes five person jaguars.

“We have gained a lot in the previous 3 years of cooperation, through which time Huawei has worked with us to demonstrate the accountable use of new technologies in guarding nature. IUCN appears forward to longer-term collaboration with Huawei as a tech leader to assistance attain worldwide targets such as the target to conserve at least 30% of the Earth’s land and water by 2030”, mentioned Dr Grethel Aguilar, Deputy Director Common for IUCN.

The major aim of the Wise Protected Places White Paper is to comprehend the productive conservation of protected regions and the sustainable management of organic sources. Primarily based on this target, the white paper identifies seven important scenarios, which includes ecological protection and restoration, resource management, and scientific study amongst other folks.

In these identified scenarios, 4 important capabilities require to be implemented, which involves extensive, multi-dimensional ecological sensing, integrated multi-network communications that can adapt to complicated terrain, intelligent evaluation that can course of action huge amounts of information from a number of sources, and the capability to apply analytical final results to the operations and management of protected regions. This blueprint proposes a extensive resolution architecture for clever protected regions primarily based on the newest developments in digital technologies.

“Biodiversity loss and climate modify are two interrelated worldwide environmental crises that call for coordinated responses. Though guarding nature, science and technologies can also assistance thousands of industries with green improvement and superior cope with climate modify,” mentioned Tao Jingwen, Huawei’s Director of the Board and Chairman of Corporate Sustainable Improvement (CSD) Committee.

Peng Song, Senior Vice President and President of Huawei’s ICT Method &amp Marketing and advertising Division, mentioned, “The Earth is our only house. Digital technologies can assistance safeguard nature reserves far more successfully and market the sustainable management of organic sources. Our original intention is to sum up the practice of science and technologies in assisting safeguard nature and to operate with partners to market the intelligent building of far more nature reserves.”

According to the WEF’s New Nature Economy Report, far more than half of the world’s GDP, about US$44 trillion, relies on nature and the solutions it delivers. Even so, climate modify and biodiversity loss are threatening the survival and sustainable improvement of humanity. A new nature economy could produce up to $ten.1 trillion in annual company worth and build 395 million jobs by 2030

To discover the future prospective of clever nature conservation, the summit brought collectively TECH4ALL partners, which includes the Yucatan state government of Mexico, the Mexican innovation agency C Minds, IUCN China, WWF Italy, Rainforest Connection, and Shandong Yellow River Delta National Nature Reserve.

Launched in 2020, Tech4Nature is a nature conservation initiative launched by Huawei and IUCN, which aims to allow far more than 300 protected regions worldwide to evaluate their conservation achievement by means of the IUCN Green List Standard and digital technologies. 

June five is 50th annual Globe Atmosphere Day. Led by the United Nations Atmosphere Programme (UNEP) and held annually on five June because 1973, Globe Atmosphere Day is the biggest worldwide platform for environmental public outreach and is celebrated by millions of men and women across the planet. In 2023, it is hosted by Côte D’Ivoire.


TECH4ALL is Huawei’ s lengthy-term digital inclusion initiative and action strategy. Enabled by revolutionary technologies and partnerships, TECH4ALL is created to assistance market inclusion and sustainability in the digital planet.
