C2G2 Workshop on Transdisciplinary Research and Governance of Climate-related Geoengineering

Workshop resources 


On 17 December 2017, the Carnegie Climate Geoengineering Governance initiative (C2G2) convened a workshop in collaboration with the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) on the side-lines of the 21st Meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Science, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA-21) in Montreal, Canada.  

The workshop brought together international experts to explore the issue of transdisciplinary research and governance on climate-related geoengineering in relation to the CBD. Discussions were stimulated by short presentations and commentary provided by leading voices from policy, academia, research, civil-society and indigenous people’s groups.  

During two breakout sessions, participants identified a range of transdisciplinary research gaps and regulatory options for governing geoengineering research.
