The Global Project Drawdown was founded in the US in 2014 to measure, model and communicate the most substantive global solutions to stop and reverse global warming – making it possible to see and compare available solutions apples to apples. This had never been done before:
- 10.000+ person-hours of research and solution-model development;
- Data-collection by 80+ researchers from around the world;
- The world-famous book ‘Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming’ translated to many languages today.
The existing Drawdown model calculates its results at a global level. To make our collective work truly useful and meaningful to users and implementers, the model needs to provide relevant knowledge speciﬁc to regional, sectoral, and local applications. Drawdown Europe together with Project Drawdown is creating an interactive Drawdown Research and Model Platform: a Python model software that enables scaling to different contexts which is a tool for implementers and decision-makers to act on.
