In April 2017, Project Drawdown released its inaugural body of work on climate solutions with the publication of the best-selling book Drawdown and a suite of open-source resources on Drawdown.org.
That material has influenced university curricula, city climate plans, commitments by businesses, community action, philanthropic strategy, and more. This Review represents the organization’s second seminal publication and the first major update to our assessment of solutions to move the world toward “Drawdown”—the future point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline.
Project Drawdown conducts an ongoing review and analysis of climate solutions—the practices and technologies that can stem and begin to reduce the excess of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere—to provide the world with a current and robust resource. The Drawdown Review is core to our efforts to respond nimbly to the rapidly evolving landscape of solutions and the urgency of the challenge humanity faces.
