The Drawdown Review

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. Get the Drawdown Review.
