Open Climate. pt 2. Technology & Platform Development

The project’s main software development efforts entail three main components.

First, a decentralized server hosting a cross-platform web application that can integrate multiple existing climate related platforms so that they can interoperate with common functions and reconciled records —thus acting as a climate ‘platform of platforms.’

Second, the consolidation of protocols and standards to enable such an interoperable and multi- layers climate accounting ecosystem, and the required governance mechanism to achieve and maintain it.

And third, a climate portal that allows multi-stakeholder users to interface and interacts with the global accounting system, either directly via the web application or via their integrated platforms (see the below figure for a layered software stack with these three outlined components in green).
