The Impact of Engineered Carbon Removal on Environmental Justice Initiatives

This project provides insight into the priorities that community groups have and how they relate to the deployment of large-scale negative emissions projects, while also documenting any educational materials that are employed to assist in better understanding of negative emissions technologies. This work is able to be used by researchers, scientists, and policymakers as a representative example of ways to start the discussion with community leaders to ensure their needs and priorities are considered and avoid further injustices.
