About the webinar

In its Special Report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C, the IPCC incorporated Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) into its emissions pathways. As discussions about climate-altering technologies and their governance gain ground in climate change negotiation spaces, it is important that practitioners in the region gather sufficient information to defend their position in these discussions.

In this context, ECLAC, in the framework of the EUROCLIMA+ Programme, the LEDS LAC Platform and C2G are developing a series of webinars aiming to strengthen regional capacities about these technologies, to understand the risks and benefits they entail, the impact that they could have on achieving the SDGs and the challenges associated with their governance.

To kick-off this series, this first webinar will address the current challenges in the region for meeting its objectives under the Paris Agreement. In addition, we will be presenting the EN-ROADS climate policy simulator developed by Climate Interactive, Ventana Systems and MIT Sloan. Through the use of this simulator, climate change practitioners will create public policy scenarios to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

This workshop will be available in both English and Spanish. If you have any doubts or queries, please write to the LEDS LAC Platform at info@ledslac.org.
