COP24, urgent actions to halt climate change are needed !!

This conference is expected to build on the COP21 Paris Agreement that promises to keep the global temperature rise this century well below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels and as close as possible to 1.5°C.

The aim of COP24 is to engender urgent action to halt climate change and to prepare for sustainable, low-carbon development under a changing climate.

Achieving the primary goal of the Paris Agreement is vital, but global average temperatures have already increased by around 1°C since pre-industrial times, underlining the need to act now.

Pursuing the Paris Agreement requires rapid reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. It is hoped that the Paris Agreement Work Programme will be finalised at COP24 in Poland, providing a process or 'rulebook' to implement the Paris Agreement.

About CO2GeoNet

CO2GeoNet is a pan-European scientific Association, legally registered in France, which joins together 29 partners from 21 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 COP24.

Our role in COP24 is to provide clear and impartial scientific knowledge and to engage in discussions with negotiators and civil society.

Our aim is to communicate the vital role for CCS as an effective and ready-to-deploy technology in reducing CO2 emissions and completing the climate change mitigation portfolio.
