The role of digital information in tackling the challenge of climate change is due to be highlighted during a summit on climate change, which is being convened by the UN Secretary-General next week.

Two winners of the UN Big Data Climate Challenge have been invited to participate in the meeting where they will showcase their projects.

The competition is the brainchild of the UN Global Pulse which was launched by the Secretary-General in 2009 to harness digital data and real time analytics for global development.

Derrick Mbatha sat down with Anoush Rima Tatevossian who is leading the global strategic partnerships and communications for UN Global Pulse to find out more about this initiative.
