UBA Governance Workshop on Solar Radiation Modification (SRM)
SRM comprises a set of controversial technologies aimed at artificially cooling the climate. Besides questions about whether and how such climate interventions can work safely and effectively, it also poses intractable governance challenges for just climate policy.
- Can SRM fit into an effective, equitable, and sustainable climate governance framework?
- What are the physical and political risks associated with research and deployment?
- Is there a risk of mitigation deterrence related SRM research?
This workshop is intended to bring policymakers, civil society actors, practitioners, politicians, and scientists into conversation around the potential governance challenges of SRM.
