Nature-Based Approaches to large-scale Carbon Dioxide Removal

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), large-scale Carbon Dioxide Removal is now required in all pathways to keep global warming under 1.5°C. Ecosystems play a critical role in the removal and long-term storage of around half of all CO2 emissions produced by human activities. Enhancing this capacity with the adoption of Nature-Based Approaches could play an important role in delivering the large-scale Carbon Dioxide Removal now required.
