The Climate Geoengineering Governance (CGG) project is a collaboration between the Universities of Oxford and Sussex and University College London, working between July 2012 and September 2014. The project is 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 think 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.
Current and past members and associate fellows of the CGG research team are playing a full part in the Climate Engineering Conference 2014 (CEC14) being held in Berlin from 18-21 August 2014.
As anthropogenic climate change is expected to impact particularly on the global south, and successful full-scale implementation of any climate geoengineering technology is bound to have cross-boundary effects, the CGG team has organised workshops in Beijing and New Delhi in collaboration with local hosts to learn what we can about local perspectives on climate policy and the possible contributions of geoengineering. Our Beijing workshop is on 13-14 May and that in New Delhi on 23-24 June.
