Haraguchi, Masahiko; et al. (2015): Human Intervention in the Earth’s Climate. The Governance of Geoengineering in 2025+

Haraguchi, Masahiko; Liu, Rongkun; Randhawa, Jasdeep; Salz, Susanne; Schäfer, Stefan; Sharma, Mundit et al. (2015): Human Intervention in the Earth’s Climate. The Governance of Geoengineering in 2025+. Edited by Robert Bosch Stiftung.

"The Global Governance Futures program (GGF) brings together young professionals to look ahead 10 years and to recommend ways to address global challenges. [...] The GGF 2025 fellows – a diverse mix from the public, private and non-profit sectors, and selected from a highly competitive field of applicants – formed three working groups that
focused on Internet governance, geoengineering governance and global arms control, respectively. Using  instruments from the field of futures research, the working groups produced scenarios for their respective issue areas."

ETC Group: Geoengineering and Climate Change. Implications for Latin America, Africa, Asia

"Geoengineering could technically take climate decisions away from all but the richest countries. Computer models show that stratospheric interventions to reduce sunlight and lower temperatures may benefit some temperate zones but negatively impact Latin America with important social and agricultural consequences."

Craik, Neil; Moore, Nigel (2014): Disclosure-based Governance for Climate Engineering Research

Craik, Neil; Moore, Nigel (2014): Disclosure-based Governance for Climate Engineering Research (CIGI Papers, 50).

"The objective of this paper is to focus attention on two distinct roles that disclosure-based governance is anticipated to play: minimization of the potential for environmental and social concerns associated with CE research; and to generate and maintain legitimacy in the research process itself."

Higgins, P.A.T. (2014): Climate Change Risk Management

Higgins, P.A.T. (2014): Climate Change Risk Management. American Meteorological Society (AMS). Washington, D.C. (AMS Policy Program Study.

"Climate change risk management approaches generally fall into four broad categories: 1) mitigation—efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; 2) adaptation—increasing society’s capacity to cope with changes in climate; 3) geoengineering or climate engineering—additional, deliberate manipulation of the earth system that is intended to counteract at least some of the impacts of greenhouse gas emissions; and 4) knowledge-base expansion—efforts to learn and understand more about the climate system, which can help support proactive risk management."
