5.1 Introduction

The Third Foundation Report: Policies and Legislation Framing Carbon Capture and Storage Globally provides an empirical analysis of existing CCS policies and laws in the jurisdictions surveyed. It provides policymakers with a digest of approaches taken to CCS regulation by identifying approaches which could be replicated or adapted in jurisdictions wishing to promote and facilitate CCS projects. The report also identifies gaps in laws and policies which may impede the development and deployment of commercial scale CCS projects in the near term.
