Carbon Capture and Storage in the UNFCCC - Making Sense of it All

Date: 
Wednesday, 28 November 2012 - 11:00am
Event type: 
Seminar

This side event will provide a global update of CCS projects as well as focus on the propensity and sufficiency of the UNFCCC’s current and future arrangements to support clean energy options such as CCS. It will explore the challenges and opportunities of the UNFCCC’s architecture to facilitate in particular a wide scale deployment of CCS, considered by many governments, leading intergovernmental organisations and global commentators as being necessary to drive large scale mitigation outcomes particularly in developing countries. Further, many technology and financial agendas of the Ad-hoc Working Groups on Long-term collaborative Action (AWG-LCA) and Further Commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP) will be carried forward and continued after COP 18 through other UNFCCC bodies including the permanent subsidiary bodies, as well as independently considered by the Technology Executive Committee, the Standing Committee on Finance, and the Board of the Green Climate Fund.

Presenters for this event are:

  • Mark Radka (United Nations Environment Programme)
  • Luke Warren (The Carbon Capture & Storage Association)
  • Paul Zakkour (Carbon Counts & CDM's CCS Expert WG)
  • Graeme Sweeney (ZEP)
  • Mark Bonner (Global CCS Institute)
This event will be held in the BINGO Room within the UNFCCC Precinct from 1:00PM to 2:30PM.
