Ocean-Based Carbon Dioxide Removal
This event will explore how the oceans might be leveraged further in absorbing carbon dioxide. It will discuss different approaches, their physical and ecosystem characteristics, benefits to communities whose livelihoods are reliant upon the ocean and how they can play central roles in determining the future.
The event will discuss how the different approaches might be compared not only in terms of their capacity to enhance sequestration of carbon dioxide but also in terms of other ecosystem, adaptation, broader development goals and community benefits.
It will highlight the challenges associated with not just potential scale-up of different approaches but even the undertaking of research to further our knowledge base and discuss how these challenges might be overcome.
