Drawdown, The Book

In the spring of 2017, Project Drawdown released its inaugural body of work on climate solutions with the publication of the New York Times bestselling book Drawdown. 

Drawdown has become a seminal text on climate solutions, drawing on humanity’s collective wisdom about the practices and technologies that can begin to reverse the buildup of atmospheric carbon by mid-century. 

The material contained within the pages of Drawdown has influenced university curricula, city climate plans, commitments by businesses, community action, philanthropic strategy, and more. This website provides a supplemental list of references used in development of the book.

The solutions content in the original book remains robust and relevant and its broader lessons still hold. For Project Drawdown’s latest packaged analysis and insights, please see The Drawdown Review (2020).
