Scaling Carbon Dioxide Removal: Limitations and Potential
September 21, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDTFree
The recent Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has underscored the urgency to expand the use of carbon sinks to avoid the most drastic effects of climate change. The IPCC report estimates that carbon dioxide removal (CDR) solutions will be necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and limit warming to 1.5 degrees C—with little to no overshoot—by the end of the century. However, the current pace of development of CDR solutions is still lagging to meet global climate goals.
In this webinar, experts will discuss the potential role of nature-based and technological CDR solutions in future comprehensive decarbonization strategies, overcoming barriers for large-scale deployment of CDR, and how environmental justice can be embedded in CDR frameworks.
