C2G Issues Call for Papers for Global Policy

12 July, 2019  – The Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G) and Global Policy are collaborating to produce a Special Issue focusing on the governance of emerging climate technologies: Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) and Solar Radiation Modification (SRM). The issue is planned for launch in May 2020, allowing time for published articles to be considered in the literature review for the sixth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-AR6).

Original papers are invited from authors from all backgrounds and interests to address the governance of these technologies and methods. We define governance (in line with the IPCC) to broadly include the means for deciding, managing, implementing and monitoring policies and measures, and the participation of different stakeholders in these. Some examples of the issues that papers might consider addressing include:

  • Presenting new concepts or ideas about technologies, including so-called Nature-Based Solutions and the related governance challenges;
  • Addressing knowledge gaps around governance of CDR/SRM in relation to biodiversity and ecosystems services (e.g. see this C2G brief on knowledge gaps in relation to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD));
  • Governance of related research;
  • An exploration of governance at subnational, national, regional and international scale;
  • Transdisciplinary, thematic or stakeholder perspectives on governance;
  • Taking a world view of critical areas of global concern such as the Arctic; High mountain regions; Small islands; etc.;
  • Governing large-scale CDR (e.g. see this C2G paper on CDR governance readiness)
  • Addressing knowledge gaps around governance of CDR/SRM in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (e.g. see recommendations of C2G report on SDGs);
  • Reviews of existing research and/or governance debate.

All papers will be subject to the journal’s usual independent peer review process.

Please submit 200-word Abstracts (including proposed title), accompanied by the name of the author(s), author(s) institutional affiliation, link to any related publications by the author(s), and contact email address(es) for consideration by no later than 26th July 2019.
