The Yale Openlab, the Open Earth Foundation and the Verses teams will provide a demonstration of the Open Climate platform efforts, showcasing how distributed ledger technologies (DLT) frameworks, like Hyperledger Indy and Aries, alongside next-gen spatial web protocols can be leveraged to establish nested jurisdictional accounting of climate actions via digital assets. This presentation will continue into a panel discussion around the relevance and application of Hyperledger frameworks in the climate context, including opportunities identified from the Climate Action and Accounting SIG. With verifiable, trusted and context-aware carbon data assets as a core element, the demo will propose and discuss how to achieve interoperability of climate markets and allow cross-jurisdictional trading whilst avoiding double counting.
