IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme

Background to the Study


Reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the International Energy Agency (IEA), have shown that Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) will be required to achieve net negative emissions to reach the target of the Paris Agreement, limiting the temperature increase caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.


On June 28, 2022, the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum Technical Group( CSLF TG) Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) CCUS Initiative, IEAGHG, and the Mission Innovation (MI) CDR Mission jointly organized a workshop on CDR, hosted by the Research Council of Norway in Bergen, Norway.


The aim of the workshop was to provide members and other stakeholders with an update on the status of CDR, identify crucial knowledge gaps and the mechanisms to resolve them, and find possible cooperation/collaboration opportunities.
