contribution to COP22

COP22 - The road ahead after COP21

According Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary UNFCCC:

" The UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech is the crucial next step for governments looking to operationalize the Paris Climate Change Agreement adopted last year. While the Paris Agreement gave clear pathways and a final destination in respect to decisive action on climate change, many of the details regarding how to move forward as one global community in that common direction still need to be resolved. With the entry into force of the Agreement happening on 4 November – just days before COP 22 – the dialogue and decisions in Marrakech hold immense potential to accelerate and amplify the immediate response to the challenge recognized in the Paris Agreement. This meeting is therefore incredibly important. "

CO2GeoNet, the European Network of Excellence on the Geological Storage of CO2, is keen to contribute to tackle these challenges.

At COP22, CO2GeoNet is engaged with stakeholders to communicate the science that supports Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) as an important technology for climate change mitigation.

About CO2GeoNet

CO2GeoNet is a pan-European scientific Association, legally registered in France, which joins together 26 partners from 19 European countries, ranging from national geological surveys, through to research institutes and universities, all with a high international profile and critical mass in CO2 geological storage research.

CO2GeoNet is acknowledged as the European scientific authority dealing with all aspects of geological storage of CO2. Through its activities of collaborative research, information and communication, training and scientific advice, CO2GeoNet is durably engaged in enabling the safe and efficient deployment of the CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) technology in order to mitigate climate change and ocean acidification.

CO2GeoNet is contributing, in collaboration with other international organisations, to side-events and a booth at COP22, in the UNFCCC Negotiation Blue Zone, open only to accredited negotiators and observers, and in the Innovation Green Zone, open to the general public.

Our role in COP22 is to provide clear and impartial scientific knowledge and to engage in discussions with negotiators and the civil society. Our aim is to communicate on CCS as a proven and safe technology, which is vital for reducing CO2 emissions and completing the climate change mitigation portfolio.
