CO2GeoNet and CCSA acting jointly as the European Regional Stakeholder Champion, hosted the first CSLF European stakeholder meeting in line with the new CSLF stakeholder engagement strategy initiated in 2016. 

The key messages from this event, held on 6th October 2017 in Brussels , were taken forward to the 7th CSLF Ministerial hosted in Abu Dhabi in early December 2017. 

The key messages from the European stakeholders recommended practical actions that ministers could use to show continued political support for CCS and to accelerate CCS roll-out in the European region, e.g. including CCS in national climate targets (including NDCs) and infrastructure plans, developing tailored mechanisms to advance CCS with ring-fenced funding and providing policy support for collaboration with industrial companies and regions on CCS.
