UNFCCC Technical Workshop on Modalities and Procedures for Carbon Capture and Storage

In September of 2011, Dr. Katherine Romanak of STORE presented a talk on groundwater at a technical workshop in Abu Dhabi, which made important progress toward allowing support for carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the UN Framework on Climate Change. Ninety-one delegates from 33 countries and an array of expert organizations attended the workshop from September 7-8. Presentations informed the UNFCCC Secretariat who was preparing options in a negotiating text for Parties in Durban.
