Restoring Landscapes in the Aral Sea Region
How can disruptive technology transform the Aral Sea region?
The Aral Sea in Central Asia, once the world’s fourth-largest inland water body, has almost disappeared due to the overuse of its resources and the climate crisis, endangering the livelihoods of 40 million people who live in the region.
The Global Disruptive Tech Challenge 2021 aims to identify and support disruptive technologies and innovative approaches to landscape restoration in the Aral Sea region and Central Asia. The Challenge asks innovators from around the world to submit their ideas and help change the lives of millions of people.
The webinar, held on 11 January, 20:00 UTC+6, is an opportunity to learn more about the Challenge and the Aral Sea region, connect with world leading institutions and regional organizations and universities, and get your questions on the Challenge answered.
