Webinar on Carbon Removals: Unravelling the Real Story
Please join us on Tuesday 18 July at 12 pm UTC for the latest in our webinar series exploring the threats posed by false climate solutions to our forests, biodiversity, and the rights of Indigenous Peoples, local communities, and especially women in all their diversities.

The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports paint a difficult path to 1.5°C and we are already seeing the devastating effects of average temperature increases at 1.2°C. Policy and financial flows to cutting greenhouse gas emissions in line with the IPCC recommendations remain alarmingly scarce. By contrast, we are seeing increasing momentum for carbon dioxide removals (CDR) as a tool to combat climate change, including through geoengineering projects, Bio Energy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS), and monoculture tree plantations.
But do we need removals? Are they a distraction from the real work of cutting emissions? What do these ‘removals projects’ actually look like on the ground, and what impact will they have on the land sector, particularly forests? And what are the human rights implications of these projects?
Register now for our latest webinar to discuss these issues with experts, colleagues and allies in the pursuit to protect our forests and the rights of those who depend on and protect them.
Simultaneous interpretation will be available in English, French, and Spanish.
