Climate scenarios say that emission reductions are the backbone of climate action, but CO2 removal (CDR) also plays an important role. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change calls CDR "unavoidable". The EU climate law determines that CDR will become a central part of EU climate action: from 2050 onwards, the EU should remove more greenhouse gases than it emits.
This is a great challenge. But are Member States ready for it?
This webinar presents and discusses a report by Ecologic Institute on national frameworks for CDR. The report assesses the CDR policy frameworks of all 27 Member States and makes recommendations on how to improve them. For further information, please see the agenda.
