Sao Paulo, Brazil & Mumbai, India - December 5, 2021
umgrauemeio Global, a wildfire management technology provider, announces the development of AI backed earlydetection and prevention solutions for the Indian subcontinent.
From a mission to ensure global warming levels below 1.5ºC, umgrauemeio Global launched with an initial focus to address wildfires in the Amazon rainforest, a biome where fires have a multitude of downstream effects including CO2 emissions, respiratory illness, water supply destruction, agriculture asset loss, and wildlife mortality.
Through greater focus on prevention, which is far less costly than active fire mitigation, umgrauemeio Global changes the equation on how forest rich biomes cope with wildfires. With installations across 70+ monitoring towers and 7+ million monitored hectares, umgrauemeio Global sees continued adoption of its data and intelligence driven earlydetection approach.
Forest fires in the Indian subcontinent have been rising sharply over the past 15 years. According to the European Union’s Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service, fires in Uttarakhand emitted nearly 0.2 mega tonnes of carbon in March, 2021. Nepal had roughly 500 forest fires in the same period. Dry conditions have left up to 36% of forests in India vulnerable to wildfire, as shown by the Forest Survey of India.
umgrauemeio Global aims to help India address these challenges through AI-backed early detection and warning solutions, requiring significantly less expense and manpower than active fire mitigation. By partnering with existing infrastructure providers umgrauemeio Global hopes for a rapid roll out of its real time alert systems to active problem regions across Northern India that have been hit the hardest.

With the ability for early detection of fire outbreaks, the environmental and asset losses are reduced up to 90%. umgrauemeio is guided by the best practices in ASG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and by Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
