Target 1. Strengthening resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters
Understanding resilience requires applying Prodegee’s embedded logic and ontology. It requires understanding that the opposite of resilience is brittleness (one denies the other), the dual of brittleness is efficiency (they are the two sides of the same coin), and the effect of efficiency is financial profit through increased productivity. Because of this, an obsession for profit maximisation has led to a brittle economic system. Increasing resilience requires replacing profit maximisation by the optimisation of the financial and non-financial performance. Nature does not maximise but optimises; She does not try to become too efficient, tending more towards the resiliency end of the spectrum.
Target 2. Integrating climate change measures into national policies, strategies, and planning
With policies, strategies, and planning pertaining to the domain of semantics, this impact is being facilitated through the application of the semantic layer built on top of the previous logic and ontology. As legislators, decision-makers and planners use the platform, they will become more proficient in applying such semantics, resulting in a better integration of climate change measures into their policies and roadmaps.
Target 3. Integrating climate change measures into national policies, strategies, and planning
This third impact is provided by the platform’s database architecture alongside the open algorithms for analysing such data. Education, awareness, and capacity building are all made possible through access to knowledge. Prodegee’s architecture aims at turning de-identified data into knowledge to be openly accessed by everyone.
Target 4. mobilise the $100 billion annually for climate mitigation promised by wealthy nations to the Global South in 2009
As a platform for impact investment, Prodegee can help mobilise funds from institutional investors by addressing the six main barriers impelling them from investing in infrastructure in the Global South, namely:
Target 5. Promoting mechanisms for raising capacity for effective climate change-related planning and management
As a platform for improving governance in a multi-stakeholder environment, Prodegee is a mechanism for raising capacity for effective climate change-related planning and management. Specifically, the target asks to put the focus on ‘women, youth and local and marginalised communities.’ This requires involving the communities in decision-making and giving them the means to provide constant feedback on the achieved results, which is one of the platform's core features.
