Agenda: Coming Soon!

Workshop Objectives

  • Descriptions of enabling and/or transforming tools and technologies for each of the Roadmap’s previously identified technical themes: Large-scale Biosequestration of Greenhouse Gases; Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation in Application Sectors (Food/Ag, Transportation & Energy Production, Materials Production); Conservation of Ecosystems and Biodiversity; Enabling Sustainable Industrial Processes; and Mitigating Environmental Pollution.
  • Drafting a set of research plans, with specific waypoints, to develop and scale these tools and technologies to address climate and sustainability challenges in a timely, sustainable, and equitable way.
  • Consider the impacts these technologies might have on biodiversity and the environment; consider social dimensions and non-technical challenges, such as security, policy, and regulations.
