On 4 April the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released its major new assessment of climate change mitigation (Working Group III). These assessments form the bedrock of scientific evidence for national and international policymaking. One topic which has seen major developments since the last assessment is carbon dioxide removal, or CDR. CDR is emerging rapidly as part of strategies to reach net zero emissions – and perhaps go beyond. This event is a chance to hear the key CDR messages from the IPCC report directly from the authors themselves, and ask them your questions.

Organised in collaboration with CO2RE, the Greenhouse Gas Removal Hub.
