Mitigation of Climate Change in IPCC’s 5th Assessment Report published

Among the 4 Working Groups (WGs) in the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the work done by WG III (Mitigation of Climate Change) has perhaps the highest relevance and impact for the work carried out in BIGCCS.

In April 2014, WG3 published their contribution to the IPCCs Fifth Assessment Report. The WG3 assesses options for mitigating climate change through limiting or preventing greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing activities that remove them from the atmosphere. In other words, many of the findings and conclusions drawn in this report provide motivation and current challenges related to CCS.
