Working toward a sustainable future in countries exposed to Hurricanes and Typhoons
This also supports UN sustainable goal #13 Climate action – Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impact.
We strive to address all questions regarding our solution with answers grounded in professional research and collaboration between Norwegian and international research institutions. We aim to develop our technology in a way that maintains the trust of the people and the local communities where we operate. We consider this as crucial in our work to contribute to a sustainable future in areas and communities exposed to hurricanes or typhoons.
