Brief Update on SRMGI Conference

Last month, the Solar Radiation Management Governance Initiative (SRMGI) held a conference to discuss regulatory questions related to research. The meeting was generally off the record, and little information has been forthcoming. However, AP has reported a couple of interesting tidbits:

  • Most participants assumed that a coalition of advanced countries, led by the US and UK, would spearhead SRM research efforts. Membership may resemble the G20.

  • An independent panel of experts would be assembled to evaluate and offer recommendations on specific research proposals.

Hopefully more information will be made available in the near future.
