The UN’s Global Roadmap sets out milestones the world must reach to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. It includes no new coal power plans after 2021 and $35bn annual investment in access to electricity by 2025.
Dr Gabrielle Walker: Reimagining carbon removalsFounder and Director of Valence Solutions, Dr Gabrielle Walker helps us imagine, in parallel with rapid reductions, how we can take CO2 out of the air at the scale needed to achieve net zero in an effective, affordable and equitable way and start reversing climate change.
Dr Gabrielle Walker is facilitating an event in collaboration with the High Level Champions on Tuesday November 9:
Futures Lab: Reimagining carbon removals
16:30-18:00, Hydro Action Room 1 and virtual
This Futures Lab is co-convened by the UNFCCC High Level Champions for Climate Action and Valence Solutions as lead partners. It features a wonderfully diverse group of climate experts who will collectively imagine a future where removals are fully playing their part in solving the climate crisis.
The discussion will cover the role of nature, technology, the Global South and how to ensure that removals go hand in hand with emissions reductions. We will then identify what we need to do now to make that a reality. Facilitated by Gabrielle Walker, Director of Valence Solutions.
