    This policy areas concerns the capacity of the Australian nation to support the development of carbon drawdown technology at a scale that can contribute to a reduction in atmospheric carbon stocks. Representative (emissions) Concentration Pathways (RCPs) modelled into the future by the IPCC depend on this technology being developed to reduce atmospheric CO2 concentrations. Currently available technology is only at a prototype stage and not yet proven to have a scalable capacity. Successful development of this technology at scale could be crucial for helping to avert some of the most catastrophic risks associated with current emission trajectories and associated increases in atmospheric CO2 concentrations.
