Carbon removal and solar geoengineering: potential implications for delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals

Carbon removal and solar geoengineering: potential implications for delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals This report explores the potential implications which two groups of experimental technologies aimed at managing global climate risk, known as Carbon Removal and Solar Geoengineering, could have for delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The report is based on a review of recent literature, combined with expert analysis and insights provided by a group of international academics and practitioners covering all 17 SDGs. While analysis is focused on implications these technologies may have for delivery of the SDGs in the lead up to 2030, it is also valid and highly relevant for the post-2030 period.
