IIASA will be hosting Dr. Jan Minx who will be here and giving a hybrid presentation.   

Dr. Minx will present key findings from the recently released The State of Carbon Dioxide Removal, the first global report assessing the state of CDR including the gap between present-day levels of removals with levels needed to achieve global climate objectives such as the 1.5C goal of the Paris Agreement. The report aims to create a community, bridge data gaps and encourage an increase in responsibility and equity in planning and deployment of CDR. 

Dr. Minx is head of the MCC working group Applied Sustainability Science. He is also a Visiting Professor for Climate Change and Public Policy at the Priestley International Centre for Climate at the University of Leeds. He works on a broad range of topics in climate and sustainability policy such as pathways to climate neutrality, the role, potential, risks and governance of carbon dioxide removal technologies, trade-offs and co-benefits of climate policies, urban climate change mitigation strategies, or just transitions and the global coal phase-out.

Dr. Minx has contributed substantially to the recent work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He is a Coordinating Lead Author of the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report, where he co-leads the chapter on emission trends and drivers in Working Group III Mitigation of Climate Change. He also played a major role during the fifth assessment cycle, where he coordinated the report process as Head of the Technical Support Unit.
