Kessler, Juliana (2019): Novel non-state sources of de facto governance in the solar geoengineering governance landscape: The case of SRMGI and C2G

Kessler, Juliana (2019): Novel non-state sources of de facto governance in the solar geoengineering governance landscape: The case of SRMGI and C2G. MSc Thesis Environmental Policy Group. Wageningen University & Research, Wageningen.

"Calls for anticipatory governance have been on the rise in discussions on solar geoengineering. Two influential governance initiatives, the Solar Radiation Management Governance Initiative (SRMGI) and the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G), intervene in and steer the solar geoengineering governance landscape, thus de facto governing it. This research analyses the governance initiatives’ interventions and governance effects as it is argued that their steering has major implications, also for how (future) governance options are envisioned and constructed."

Call for Submissions: SBRI Greenhouse Gas Removals Innovation Competition - Phase 1 [Design Study]

Deadline: 05. February 2021

"The GGR Technologies Innovation Competition is to support the development of innovative greenhouse gas removals technologies. It is to support the development of technologies that are not yet commercial rather than supporting technologies that are already mature. Therefore, the technologies to be developed must be at a technology readiness level (TRL) between 4 and 7 at the start of the project. The ultimate objective is to trial the technologies at pilot scale."
