On 30-31 August2022 in Halifax, NS, the Ocean Frontier Institute (OFI) project "Safe Navigation and Environment Protection" (Module N), Clear Seas Centre for Responsible Marine Shipping (Clear Seas) and the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University convened a hybrid workshop entitled "Shipping Risk Mitigation Research and Practice in Canada: Considering Area-Based Management Approaches".
The purpose of the workshop was to consider current and emerging practices of area-based management to mitigate the risks and impacts of shipping in Canada, and to learn from theory, research, and the experiences of practitioners, especially that of Indigenous rights-holders. The workshop was funded by the OFI Module N project with support from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund grant held by OFI. The workshop was attended by 70 people in Halifax, with another 80 participants online from across Canada.

Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR), when paired with extensive emissions reductions, is a mitigation strategy to limit warming to 1.5°C as it removes legacy carbon emissions from the atmosphere by augmenting natural processes on ocean and land.
However, in order to meet climate goals, CDR must scale 30 times its present capacity by 2030, which is estimated to require an annual global investment of 1.13 billion USD/year for research and development.

This panel event is focused on the Global Greenhouse Gas Watch, which will provide a valuable tool to support the transparency of global mitigation action.
The system will be built on three components:
Open and unrestricted access to data will ensure a full transparency of system outputs, which will provide globally consistent information that will feed multiple applications including supplementary information to the traditional inventory reporting.
