Carbon Dioxide Removals – Taking stock and preparing the next round of NDCs


This side event delves into the status of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) in international climate policy in the context of the Global Stocktake, the next round of NDCs as well as long-term strategies, and features with key experts from across science, government, civil society, and technology.

You will hear from the IPCC and State of CDR Report authorship, as well as from representatives of three critical regions for CDR –  the EU, UK, and US – on strategies to close key technical and governance gaps including interoperable MRV, transferring mitigation outcomes, and multinational cooperation. Join us at the European Union Pavilion, where we hope to crystallize key issues necessary for international negotiations to secure a sustainable path towards climate neutrality.
