Asian Development Bank (2019): Background Study on CCUS Readiness in Power, Iron and Steel, Cement and Petroleum Sectors

Asian Development Bank (2019): Background Study on CCUS Readiness in Power, Iron and Steel, Cement and Petroleum Sectors.

"This report, Background Study on CCUS Readiness in Power, Steel, Cement, and Petroleum Sectors, aims to help prepare industries for eventual decarbonization with carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) to ensure a smoother transition to a low-carbon era. The paper presents some of the existing and upcoming CCUS technologies, assesses the potential for capture-, transport-, and storage-readiness of major CO2-emitting sectors. It also investigates the financing requirements and mechanisms, as well as policy drivers and recommendations, to advance CCUS readiness."

C2G Guest Post: A better understanding of non-Western views is needed for inclusive SRM governance

"Yet public perception research on SRM has been so far limited largely to the countries of Europe and North America—the so-called WEIRD (Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich and Democratic) societies. To help fill this gap, we conducted an online survey of university students in six Asia-Pacific countries: Australia, China, India, Japan, the Philippines, and South Korea."

Sugiyama, Masahiro; et al. (2020): The North–South Divide on Public Perceptions of Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering?: A Survey in Six Asia-Pacific Countries

Sugiyama, Masahiro, Shinichiro Asayama, and Takanobu Kosugi (2020): The North–South Divide on Public Perceptions of Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering?: A Survey in Six Asia-Pacific Countries. Environmental Communication. January 3, 2020. https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/17524032.2019.1699137?journalCode=renc20&.

"The present study conducted an online survey of college students in six Asia-Pacific countries (Australia, China, India, Japan, the Philippines, and South Korea) about their attitudes toward stratospheric aerosol geoengineering, one of most discussed SRM proposals. Our results showed that students from the Global South (China, India, the Philippines) were more willing to accept geoengineering as a potential option than those from the Global North (Australia, Japan, and South Korea)."
