Naomi Vaughan and Clair Gough were responsible for chairing a roundtable for the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) on Greenhouse Gas Removal (GGR) options. The report created from this roundtable was used in Box 1.2, p.24 of the Policies for the Sixth Carbon Budget and Net Zero.
Open access paper: Mapping feasibilities of greenhouse gas removal: Key issues, gaps and opening up assessments | 03 May 2020
Johanna Forster, Naomi Vaughan, Clair Gough, Irene Lorenzoni and Jason Chilvers have published a paper on mapping the feasibilities of greenhouse gas removal. The work presents one of the first studies to elicit perspectives through an expert mapping process to broaden the discussion around feasibility of afforestation and BECCS .
