Governing Emerging Marine Climate-Altering Techniques – Stefanos Fotiou
On 7 December 2019, C2G convened an official UNFCCC COP25 side event on governing emerging marine climate-altering techniques. Stefanos Fotiou, Director of the Environment and Development Division at the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, participated in a panel discussion.
The research and potential use of marine climate-altering techniques are being discussed in the context of the Paris agreement and the ocean’s role in achieving it. None of these techniques are ready at scale. All pose significant technological and governance challenges, which need to be addressed and require the attention of stakeholders.
