Do you know about an exciting project involving AI & climate change? Climate Change AI and the Centre for AI & Climate are soliciting case studies for a report by the Global Partnership on AI (GPAI) to be launched alongside COP26.

Examples of what case studies might look like:
- A company using AI to increase the energy efficiency of factories.
- An NGO tracking deforestation using AI.
- A research team incorporating AI in climate modeling.
- A governmental agency using AI for disaster response.

We are most interested in projects that have either been deployed or are aimed towards deployment. Suggest projects by August 12 at: https://www.climatechange.ai/gpai-case-studies
