Work Package C: Rates of decarbonisation

Summary Reducing global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in order to avoid dangerous levels of climate change will require the deployment of low-carbon technologies and measures across all world regions, and across all economic sectors within these regions. This area of the AVOID 2 research programme will use a range of models representing the supply and …

Work Package D: Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS)

Summary A growing body of research, including that from the first AVOID programme, has shown that the probability of being able to limit future global warming to levels such as 1.5°C or 2°C above pre-industrial times is strongly dependent on the implementation of, so called, negative emissions technologies. Here, the basic idea is that greenhouse …

Work Package E: Land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF)

Summary About half of the carbon dioxide so far released into the atmosphere has been absorbed by the terrestrial biosphere and oceans. This carbon is then said to be have been stored in ‘sinks’. This work focuses on the scientific review and assessment of the state of knowledge on greenhouse gas emissions and sinks. When …
