The opportunities to promote carbon capture and storage (CCS) in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)

Organisation: Global CCS Institute

The effective implementation of the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will strongly rely on its leverage of existing institutional arrangements under both the Convention and the Kyoto Protocol, as well as the complementarity of any future arrangements. This staff paper identifies, characterises and analyses how the UNFCCC’s formal communication channels (referred to as ‘vehicles’ in the paper) used to articulate national climate action pledges and response strategies can assist the further development and deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies.
