Overview
This grant will allow ClimateWorks to develop a strategy for innovation and atmospheric carbon dioxide removal (CDR). The project will support the development of a new field around CDR, and make grants to existing organizations to create programs to support CDR policy development. The program will focus on engineered and natural removal. Engineered CDR includes technologies such as direct air capture, enhanced rock weathering, and bio-energy carbon capture (BECC). Natural solutions include soil enhancements such as biochar, aforestation, and changes in agricultural practices to store more carbon in the soil.
