20 July 2020. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), large-scale Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) is required in all pathways to keep global warming under 1.5°C. A range of approaches to CDR are under consideration, including technological or biological approaches, with the latter being increasingly referred to as ‘Nature-based Solutions‘.
