Meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement and stopping the worst impacts of climate change raises important questions about the role of CDR, how much of it is required and when, and how it can be deployed responsibly. This resource helps answer these questions on CDR, which is also known as Negative Emissions Technologies (NETs), by drawing on IPCC reports, a CDR Primer, and a report from the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy.
