Conference: GHGT-14

21. - 26. October 2018, Melbourne / Australia

"The IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG) is the guardian of the conference series. The GHGT conferences are held every two years in IEAGHG's member countries. The conference series rotates between North America, Europe and Asia. The GHGT conference series has established itself as the principal international conference on greenhouse gas mitigation technologies especially on CCS (CO2 Capture and Storage)."

Public Panel: Geoengineering: The Next Frontier of Climate Change Policy?

23. October 2018, Tasmania / Australia

"Geoengineering technologies are the next challenge for climate change law and governance. These are proposals to counteract climate change by removing CO2 directly from the atmosphere, or by reflecting sunlight away from the earth to reduce global temperatures. These proposals may have an important role to play alongside traditional mitigation strategies to meet the Paris Agreement temperature targets. However, they present significant governance and ethical challenges."

Lecture: Governing Solar Radiation Management

30. October 2018, Washington, DC / USA

"CSPO and the Forum for Climate Engineering Assessment, within American University’s School of International Service, invites you to a conversation about FCEA’s latest report, “Governing Solar Radiation Management.” Written by the Academic Working Group on Climate Engineering Governance, this report offers a fresh evaluation of governance needs and a set of near-term, practical governance recommendations for Solar Radiation Management (SRM) technologies. Join us to learn about the conclusions of the report and hear members of the Working Group reflect on the process of crafting this consensus document while also providing critical feedback on the report."

Conference: Biological Sequestration: The Role of Soil, Forests, and Farms in Carbontech

1. November 2018, Oakland / USA

"The international conversation about carbon removal often centers on engineered technologies such as direct air capture and product conversion. Yet the "biological" approach to sequestration—enhancing natural sinks—also has a major role to play in mitigating or reversing the negative effects of climate change..."

Workshop: Climate Change Impacts and Risks in the Anthropocene (C-CIA)

19.-23. March 2019, Riederalp, Canton of Valais, Switzerland

"Bringing together the “physical science” and the “adaptations” and “policy” communities will thus be an important and exciting element of the Workshop. Adaptation to extreme events and subsequent policies aimed at long-term implementation of adaptation strategies must manage and need to address both existing and increasing levels of uncertainty. This implies that a high level of knowledge on extreme events needs to be generated in order to reduce uncertainty, thus leading to more robust estimates of exactly what can be achieved in terms of adaptation, within what timeframe, and at what cost. This kind of policy guidance is ultimately what is required to curtail risks and impacts generated by climate extremes, and it is with some confidence that we believe that the planned workshop, through its interdisciplinary mix of researchers, will be able not only to address the key issues, but also provide some guidance as to applicable solutions."
