C2G: Technical Brief: Considering climate-altering technologies in the IPCC AR6

"The Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-AR6), currently in preparation, will play a key role in the formation of future climate change policy. This brief identifies where climate-altering technologies: Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) and Solar Radiation Modification (SRM) will be considered for inclusion in the Assessment. It also identifies where opportunities exist for the inclusion of further contributions about CDR, SRM and their governance, before the deadline for literature review in June 2020."
