Japanese Government Considers Research Funding
The Japanese Ministry of the Environment is currently finalizing funding decisions under a 5-year, ¥1.5 billion ($19 million) umbrella project titled "Comprehensive Research on Construction of Risk Management Strategies for Global Climate Change" (see here for a rough English-language translation). As part of this project, the Ministry is considering support for efforts to incorporate both SRM and CDR geoengineering techniques into advanced integrated assessment models. Final decisions are expected soon, with the project scheduled to begin in April.
