Summary / Description

In the past years the momentum around marine Carbon Dioxide Removal (mCDR) has grown tremendously in part in response to growing scientific consensus that carbon removal will be a necessary part of achieving our climate goals.

  • Contribute to existing product that track domestic CDR legislation
  • Collecting and processing social scientific data pertaining to CDR policy readiness
  • Assist in coordinating the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON)’s mCDR working group and related initiatives
  • Generate new tools to track international CDR products and initiatives
