Launched in March 2010, the Solar Radiation Management Initiative (SRMGI) is being coordinated by The Royal Society (UK), TWAS, the academy of sciences for the developing world, and the Environmental Defense Fund, USA. IAP has recently joined the initiative as stakeholder partner.
Despite years of negotiation, the nations of the world have so far failed to agree to limits on greenhouse gas emissions.
This has increased interest in geoengineering—deliberate, large-scale interventions in Earth’s climate system—in order to moderate global warming.
Few international guidelines for geoengineering research exist, so the Royal Society partnered with TWAS and Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) to form the SRMGI. The SRMGI aims to ensure that geoengineering research is conducted in a manner that is responsible, transparent and environmentally sound.
SRMGI seeks to develop guidelines to ensure that geoengineering research is conducted in a manner that is transparent, responsible and environmentally sound. For full details, please visit www.srmgi.org
