Saving orangutan habitats – digital technology and rainforest protection in Indonesia.
Digitalisation can do practically anything. Everyone is connected to everyone else, and
anything can be measured by and transferred into data. But what effect does this have, especially outside of the digital world, for tangible issues such as climate change and nature conservation? To answer these questions, a HIIG research team is travelling across four
continents to determine the potential of digital technologies for sustainability and development. The orangutan’s desperate struggle with deforestation, fire and illegal logging in Indonesia’s rainforests illustrates the challenge to find sustainable and applicable solutions in time.
