About the webinar

The Paris Agreement aims to hold temperature increase well below 2.0°C – further to 1.5°C. The Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C (SR15) by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), refines the message of its 5th assessment report (2014) that large scale carbon removal has to be part of the global effort to balance out emissions left after ambitious reduction efforts to reach net-zero. To stay within 1.5°C, this has to occur within 30 years. Compatible pathways involve a mix of large scale biological and/or technological carbon removal processes (referred to as CDR). The report recognizes that all these techniques still involve uncertainties around feasibility, sustainability, and represent major governance challenges.

The webinar will provide an overview of the main findings of the IPCC in relation to large scale CDR techniques, their governance challenges, all in in relation to Low Emission Development Strategies. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org.
