Welcome to Climate Geoengineering Governance, a research project which aims to provide a timely basis for the governance of geoengineering through robust research on the ethical, legal, social and geopolitical implications of a range of geoengineering approaches.

The Project

The Climate Geoengineering Governance (CGG) project is a collaboration between the Universities of Oxford and Sussex and University College London, which worked between July 2012 and December 2014.  The project was funded by two UK Research Councils: Economic and Social (ESRC), and Arts and Humanities (AHRC).

This website is designed to give you an opportunity to engage with our programme of work, its products and its events.  As background you may find it useful to understand why we thought it timely and important to research this subject  , and to know something of one of the early foundations of our work, the Oxford Principles on Geoengineering Governance. A wide range of outputs from the research is available on the site.

CGG Briefing Notes now available here on the website and in hard copy

CGG has now produced seven briefing notes summarising the findings and recommendations of the project. View the online versions…

Geoengineering Research: Where Next? Presentations now available on YouTube

On 26 November 2014 three climate geoengineering projects funded by RCUK – Climate Geoengineering Governance (CGG), the Integrated Assessment of Geoengineering Proposals (IAGP) and Stratospheric Particle Injection for Climate Engineering (SPICE) held a joint dissemination day at the Royal Society entitled Geoengineering Research: Where Next?. The presentations from that day are now available on YouTube and can be accessed here.
