Wildfires are becoming more frequent globally and the world is witnessing a transition from wildfire season to a wildfire year. 2021 saw major wildfires across all continents except Antarctica with wildfire smoke also reaching the North pole!

Fueled primarily by climate change, the 2021 wildfire season cost $70bn to $90bn in the U.S. alone, triggering a pressing need to better understand wildfire risk and re-evaluate the status quo to build resilient businesses. 

The dire need to tackle these challenges requires fundamental transformations to business models and deep integration of climate risk, specifically wildfire risk, into the overall risk assessment framework.

These commitments have major implications for carbon sequestration and global climate goals. Hence, even greater need to leverage the latest tools and technologies like AI, APIs, cloud computing, and satellite data to proactively monitor our natural carbon sinks.

Since the launch of Sputnik, the first-ever satellite, there have been 8,378 launches in 62 years. Meanwhile, the space economy was worth a whopping $385bn in 2017, representing a 33% increase from 2011.

This figure is set to increase even more, reaching $1 trillion by 2040. This is due to a recent paradigm shift where companies have taken the lead in competition and production in the space economy. 

This report aims to provide a broad understanding of the space economy, covering everything from the size of the economy to current technology and use cases.

India faces a severe air pollution crisis. This study undertakes a rigorous quantitative analysis of factors like premature mortality, presenteeism, absenteeism and consumer footfall to understand the economic impacts of pollution.

Findings from the report suggest that air pollution costs Indian businesses $95 billion or 3% of India’s GDP every year. More significantly, New Delhi and Kolkata lose 6% and 4% of their GDP to air pollution.

Smart Air Quality

According to a report by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, there is a strong correlation between long-term exposure to air pollution and COVID-19 mortality.

With air pollution increasing the vulnerability of people to COVID-19 and leading to millions of premature deaths every year, it has become significantly more important to monitor the air we breathe.

Presently, the air quality is measured by two methods: (a) Manual Monitoring; and (b) Real-time monitoring using air quality monitors. As the reading of air quality monitors is limited to their location only and it is impossible to have air quality monitors at every location. For example, for an area of 3.287 million km2, India only has only 250 ground monitors which means every monitor is providing representative data for approximately 13000 km2.
