Our colleagues, Fridah Kiboori and Jackson Kimani from Climate Action Platform – Africa (CAP-A) are in Gabon for Africa Climate Week, where they will be delivering an event on the extensive opportunities for carbon removal that the continent presents.
Hit the link at 12.00pm CAT | 11.00 BST | 12.00 CEST to tune in to the event Teams link and view their panel discussion on Carbon Valley in Africa: At Scale Carbon Removals to Drive Continental and Global Change.
In June, TED Countdown hosted a Dilemma Session in New York focusing on the role of carbon credits in climate action. Gabrielle Walker and Delia Meth-Cohn of Rethinking Removals joined forces with Julio Friedmann (Carbon Direct) and Eli Mitchell-Larson (Carbon Gap) to design and present a workshop on carbon removals. We were aiming to focus on understanding quality criteria such as additionality and durability - but we started by looking at why we see carbon removals as a source of hope for climate action, not as climate denial or and moral hazard.
Here, Delia takes us through the stages of that event.
