C2G: Taking stock after the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit

"Two new IPCC special reports this quarter – one on land and one on the ocean and cryosphere – highlight an increasingly alarming state of affairs, as millions of people worldwide are experiencing extreme climactic events, from storms to floods, to heatwaves and droughts. The reports also draw attention to a lack of governance – in particular on finding integrated solutions to maximize the synergy and minimize trade-offs between different actions."

ICRLP: Meeting Report: How to Talk About Carbon Removal: A Communications Workshop

"On September 18-19, 2019, the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy (ICRLP) hosted a meeting titled “How to Talk About Carbon Removal.” The meeting was intended to facilitate a dialogue between stakeholders working on carbon removal and to provide a space to discuss strategies for improved communication of the topic. The outcomes of the meeting are informing an in-progress ICRLP report, being prepared by communications scholar Matthew Nisbet of Northeastern University, on carbon removal communication."

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."

C2G: Evidence Brief: Governing Nature-Based Solutions to Carbon Dioxide Removal

"This briefing summarises the latest evidence relating to the governance of Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) to Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR). It describes a range of techniques currently under consideration, exploring their technical readiness, current research, applicable governance frameworks, and other socio-political considerations. It also provides an overview of key instruments relevant for the governance of NBS based CDR."

C2G: Report: Governing Carbon Removal

"Carbon Removal (CDR) approaches address the cause of climate change, by lowering the atmospheric concentration of CO2—the greenhouse gas most responsible for anthropogenic global warming. They cover a variety of techniques, with different effects. "

C2G: Strategy and Approach: The Need to Govern Climate-Altering Technologies

"The Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G) is a small, foundation-funded initiative of the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. It seeks to catalyse the creation of governance frameworks for emerging climate-altering technologies: in particular, for solar radiation modification and large-scale carbon dioxide removal."

Strefler, J.; et al. (2019): Towards net zero - Carbon dioxide removal and utilisation. Insights from the Australian-German Energy Transition Hub

Strefler, Jessica; Burdon, Rebecca; Colvin, Rebecca; Dooley, Kate; Fuss, Sabine; Minx, Jan (2019): Towards net zero - Carbon dioxide removal and utilisation. Insights from the Australian-German Energy Transition Hub.

"CDR presents opportunities for both Australia and Germany: Australia could be a significant source of land-based CDR using nature-based solutions. This can deliver co-benefits for biodiversity, ecosystem services, and agricultural productivity. Australia could also be major supplier of DACCS or BECCS. The need for accelerated development of CDR and CCU technologies could be an opportunity for an innovation country like Germany. Having played a key role in developing sound knowledge of the role of CDR in climate change mitigation, future Hub research could provide tailored information for guiding national CDR efforts in Australia and Germany."

Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See: Statement: First Annual Climate Restoration Forum

"In the fight against climate change, we hear a lot about mitigation and adaptation, but not about climate restoration. I have learned that climate restoration seeks to return the Earth’s climate within one or two generations to its condition before the start of the Industrial Revolution."
