Samaniego, et al. (2021): Current understanding of the potential impact of Carbon Dioxide Removal approaches on the Sustainable Development Goals in selected countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Summary for policy makers

Samaniego, Schmidt, Carlino et al. (2021): Current understanding of the potential impact of Carbon Dioxide Removal approaches on the Sustainable Development Goals in selected countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Summary for policy makers. Carnegie Climate Governance Initative (C2G)/ Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), March 2021.

"Key findings include:

  • Climate change mitigation in Latin America and the Caribbean region efforts are focused on emissions reductions, while consideration of CDR is only just beginning.
  • Deployment of large-scale CDR approaches would have regional physical and socio-economic implications, including for efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are insufficiently explored and understood.
  • Decisions on the potential development of CDR requires more information about costs, but also about the possible impact on employment and Gross Domestic Product, potential for emissions reduction, as well as consideration of implementation risks, in order to avoid misallocation of resources."

Gilmore, Elisabeth A.; Buhaug, Halvard (2021): Climate mitigation policies and the potential pathways to conflict: Outlining a research agenda

Gilmore, Elisabeth A.; Buhaug, Halvard (2021): Climate mitigation policies and the potential pathways to conflict: Outlining a research agenda. In Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Climate Change, e722. DOI: 10.1002/wcc.722.

"To contribute to efforts for aligning climate policy with broader societal goals, specifically those related to sustainable development, we identify the effects of climate mitigation policy on aspects of socioeconomic development that are known determinants of conflict and evaluate the plausibility and importance of potential pathways to armed conflict and political violence."

C2G Guest Post: What implications could SRM have for the SDGs?

"Measures for fighting climate change – especially at large scale – come with side-effects on society and the environment, both positive (co-benefits) and negative. Solar Radiation Modification (SRM) is no different."

IEAGHG Report (2020): CCS and the sustainable development goals (SDGs)

IEAGHG Report (2020): CCS and the sustainable development goals (SDGs).

"This study has mapped carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies against a select number of the 17 SDGs that have a direct interaction for both the power and industrial sectors. The overall objective of this assessment was to improve the availability and accessibility of information regarding the relevance of CCS in contributing to the achievement of the SDGs."

C2G Guest Post: Can we end hunger and reduce CO2 levels at the same time?

"Functioning ecosystems are not only central to the carbon cycle; they are the basis of livelihoods, culture and identity for people. Healthy ecosystems protect biodiversity, water cycles, disaster risk reduction, global health, and – perhaps most crucially of all – food."
