About TiD.coop

About TiD.coop

TiD emerges from the need to revisit how investment is mostly done in many developing countries; this is through donations in the form of NGOs, or through governmental, or corporate initiatives under the motto of “development”

The former proposes a condescending model of charity from first world nations towards third world nations, whereas the latter, in many occasions, foster generic solutions for globalizing purposes in territories with site-specific needs. Neither of them tends to foster local initiatives, nor enhance local values; they rather indicate what natives should do according to a first world perspective, and gather funds highlighting “underdevelopment” with negative implications, –we aim to reverse this trend. Since each territory has very specific conditions (cultural, climatic, geographic, etc..), we entitle locally driven initiatives which are carried by the experts in field, the natives. These societies show alternative living standards with resiliency methods, and sustainable developments in specific territories that are of global value, more in the era of global warming, and general harm to our environmental assets.

Blockchain technology

Represents the infrastructure for TiD platform, and the one that will provide transparency and traceability to the nowadays opaque methods of funding allocation…

The protocol to be used must allow decentralized applications, be of public nature, have stability in its network (PoS, PoW), and allow a certain number of transactions per second (TPS). The most established network is Ethereum, but new protocols aiming to solve scalability solutions and business integration are emerging. This platform/application should be accessible by anyone in the world who is interested in funding projects. We propose a Proof of Citizenship (PoC) or digital ID system to validate the residency of its project proposers.

Areas of intervention

TiD currently maintains 3 exploration areas for the development of territories. All of them have completed intervention phases and are active in different stages.

Projects

TiD currently has seven open projects in several areas of intervention. The works range from the identification of opportunities and needs in the field, to the establishment of local observatories or offices with on-site work teams.

EQUATORIAL PACIFIC

TUNA OBSERVATORY

TUNA OBSERVATORY

The Equatorial Pacific contains 70% of the world's tuna reserves and less than 2% of the catches are landed or processed in the region.

The industrial fishing licensed to third parties is almost unsupervised and is added to a large volume of illegal fishing. One of the biggest obstacles for the growth of this sector is ‘Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated’ (IUU) fishing practices. This affects the social-economic conditions of countries that are heavily dependent on fishing industry revenues and increases risks to them due to the severe overexploitation.

Tuna Observatory will collect data and information on these processes and will lay the foundations for regional fisheries development actions and sustainability of the fishing zones.

Tuna Observatory will license the "LEGAL TUNA" seal to create awareness inside the fishing industry and amongst consumers about the massive problem the illegal tuna fishing represents through the creation of a Blockchain tracing system with scope for the final consumer.

MEMBERSHIP

Tuna Observatory is currently under development and requires funds and strategic support.

SINKING ISLANDS

SINKING ISLANDS

As a result of climate change, countries like Kiribati are threatened by costal erosion and the impacts of global warming are putting hundreds of islands and atolls in the Equatorial Pacific region at risk of disappearing.

More than a dozen small countries are at severe risk of loss of mainland territory or the disappearance of habitat conditions, and millions of people could become climate migrants in the coming decades.

Sinking Islands is a project of LAIA Lab for the identification of climate impact indicators and the development of contingency technologies.

From TiD, actions to strengthen natural barriers will be promoted, such as engineering projects to stimulate the growth of coral barriers, or consolidation of the land in a natural way supporting the farming of native plant species such as mangrove and shrub to protect coastal areas from storms and extreme weather episodes.

Sinking Islands Program is under development and requires funds and strategic support for its continuity.

HUB CO2

HUB CO2

Kiribati is one of the countries with the lowest levels of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, but at the same time the most threatened in the world by climate change as a result of third-party emissions.

Their interest in curbing the effects of climate change is a matter of survival, since 90% of their territory could be severely affected or even disappear with a simple moderate increase in the level of the oceans and the intensification of storms and other associated atmospheric and weather phenomena.

Hub CO2 is a program aimed at entities involved in the control of climate change as well as research projects and start-ups specializing in CO2 fixation technologies, especially in the ocean environment.

The program consists of the development of an experimentation and acceleration centre, based in Tarawa, in the epicentre of the Pacific Ocean and one of the most sensitive places on earth to observe the impact of CO2 on the environment.

Hub CO2 will promote the economic development of the region, fostering the on-site location of work teams, offering local employment, and promoting agreements with universities and organizations with related programs.

MEMBENERSHIP

Hub CO2 is currently a work in progress and requires funds and strategic support.

Hub CO2 Member: 10,000 USD/year
Silver partner: 20,000 USD/year
