Since its founding, the Bezos Earth Fund has known the potential for AI to multiply impact for climate change mitigation and nature loss solutions. The Earth Fund has brought together practitioners across climate, nature, and AI to build community within the space and inform the design of the AI for Climate and Nature Grand Challenge. Through this work, the Earth Fund supported the development of three reports that offer insights on the landscape of climate, nature, and AI. The Grand Challenge is exploring new ideas that will build upon work already happening across the globe, to scale impact of climate and nature solutions using modern AI. 

These reports and other resources are available to Grand Challenge applicants as they develop their proposals for the first round of awards. To learn more, visit the resources page of the Grand Challenge website. Proposal submissions are due via the Grand Challenge website by July 30, 2024.

Three new publications offer insights on connections between climate, nature, and AI

Landscape Assessment of AI for Climate and Nature Report

An overview of current uses of AI in climate and nature, as well as emerging opportunities at the nexus of those fields. (Developed by Columbia University’s Climate School and the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science; the University at Albany, State University of New York; and Esri; commissioned by and in collaboration with the Bezos Earth Fund.)

AI for Climate and Nature Workshop: Summary Report

The Bezos Earth Fund's AI for Climate and Nature Workshop, held in San Francisco in October 2023 in partnership with Foresight Institute, invited practitioners, researchers, and entrepreneurs across AI, climate, and nature. Designed to provide critical insights to inform next steps, the workshop illuminated AI “superpowers”, priority climate and nature challenge areas, and 59 opportunity spaces most suited to bringing together this “supply and demand.” (Summary report of Bezos Earth Fund-led workshop.)
