About the webinar

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 1.5°C Special Report on Global Warming indicates that large-scale removal of carbon dioxide must be part of the international strategy to keep the temperature increase well below 2°C to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. The pathways proposed in the Special Report involve a combination of biological and technological approaches to large-scale Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR). While the use of CDR has been incorporated in the IPCC pathways, the Report emphasises that all these approaches still involve uncertainties regarding feasibility and sustainability and represent significant governance challenges.

The webinar will provide an overview of the main findings of the IPCC regarding large-scale CDR approaches and will present the scope of some of the main CDR techniques, both biological and technological. It will also give participants an overview of the potential benefits and risks that these approaches could bring to biodiversity, air, groundwater, soil and food sovereignty, as well as the governance challenges associated with the large-scale deployment of these techniques.

The webinar will be held in Spanish with simultaneous translation in English. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org.
