Technology must take care of the planet: Victorialand
Approximate reading time: 1 minute, 47 seconds
Global biodiversity has started to decline significantly in recent years due to the destruction of its ecosystems, climate change or human intervention. This is why Victorialand will seek to deploy exponential technologies for humanity that benefit and promote the protection, monitoring and restoration of 40% of the planet’s ecosystems by 2027.
“The greatest victory for humanity will be to show off biodiversity,” said Victorialand CEO Christopher Cordova.
Furthermore, the Executive Chairman of Victorialand stressed that new industries should engage in the conservation of biodiversity and natural resources, as they are not at all conducive to the data on biodiversity loss discovered by the National Organization. of the United Nations (UN).
According to the United Nations, human activity has changed the land environment by 75% and the marine environment by 66%, while one million animal and plant species are in danger of extinction. Biodiversity and the degradation of ecosystems could prevent the achievement of 80% of the objectives of the eight sustainable development goals presented by the United Nations.
However, VictoriaLand (Victoria.land) has begun rolling out a new generation of carbon credits, adhering to the Decentralized Environmental Verification (DEV) standard created by the Victoria ecosystem.
“Every human with access to the internet will be a potentially independent verifier, they will be able to see, hear and interact with data from nature and identify if it makes sense or if there is a risk to the ecosystem, such as exploitation illegal logging in a forest, or changing levels of contamination in a lake, and most importantly, will be able to verify that the information behind the carbon credits is authentic,” he explained.
According to Christopher Cordova, technologies such as artificial intelligence, data science and blockchain are expected to be used to structure dynamic data systems from an ecosystem in the near future. In other words, these technologies can ensure that an ecosystem is secure and can be verified by anyone at any time.
This way we can better care for, understand and manage ecosystems directly supported by accurate data, and with DEV, a temporary opportunity opens up for collaborative and decentralized monitoring of biodiversity.
According to data from Statista, the use of social networks is one of the main incentives to break the digital barrier in Latin America. At the end of January 2022, the percentage of users of these platforms was over 60% in most countries in the region. In Mexico, in particular, the number of people interacting via social networks is expected to exceed 95 million in 2025, and in the case of Spain, it ranks fifth in terms of Internet users in 2020, with 93% of the population. related. ,
Finally, thanks to the fact that a large part of the population is connected to the Internet, it will offer greater visibility to biodiversity by bringing nature into “smartphones and people’s daily lives as exciting and easy-to-use materials”. . . Understand and share,” concluded Christopher Cordova.
