Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) techniques, which aim to remove and sequester excess carbon from the atmosphere, have been identified as an important part of the portfolio of responses to climate change and have been garnering increased attention. Forests, grasslands, agricultural lands, and soils are significant reservoirs of carbon. As the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has increased, there is growing interest in land management practices that can enhance the uptake and storage of carbon.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a webinar on September 14 and a workshop on September 19, 2017, to explore the current state of knowledge on the potential or capacity of land management practices as a CDR approach, the research that could help achieve this capacity and to estimate the impacts of land management practices across multiple scales, the state of knowledge on policies and incentives, and the socio-economic constraints on soil carbon sequestration and forest carbon storage activities. This publication briefly summarizes the presentations and discussions from both the webinar and the workshop.
