Hi all,

At the TCCS-11 online conference in June 2021, Professor Sir Robert T. Watson from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) will deliver a keynote presentation about the impact of climate change on biodiversity to provide vital context to our discussions about CCS, especially bioenergy CCS.
Among other career highlights, Sir Robert has worked as scientific advisor in the Office of Science and Technology Policy, White House; chief scientist, World Bank; and chief scientific advisor, UK Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

We asked Sir Robert a couple of questions to get a preview of what we can expect at TCCS-11.

Thanks for reading,
