(...) There is also a need to harness the power of data, AI and mobile apps to nudge consumer awareness and behavior towards sustainability. • Public-private partnerships (PPPs) are needed in order to leverage private sector expertise and infrastructure in data science, cloud computing and AI, to share data and to promote the use of technology for global public goods. • Environmental data custodians must make their data sets as open and interoperable as possible, allowing data to flow across digital ecosystems using web services and APIs. Environmental organizations should adopt common data strategies, assigning specific leadership rolls to different actors and agreeing on the core global public good data sets that are needed to monitor the health of the planet and progress against different global agreements. • There is a need to curate and release global data analytics on environmental risks that have the power to influence global markets and investments towards more sustainable resource-management solutions. • There is a need to build on, and leverage, existing partnerships and practitioner communities to ensure that the digital ecosystem for the environment is inclusive and does not overlap with, or duplicate, existing activities.
