Providing equitable access to resources and empowering diverse communities to make decisions to reduce their carbon emissions is both necessary to implement solutions, and tends to have multiplying effects on all drawdown solutions. The solutions themselves when scaled-up also have societal benefits. This workshop will examine these social angles of the Drawdown solutions and inter-relations.
