Puno, Railla Veronica D. (2020): A Rights-Based Approach to Governance of Climate Geoengineering

Puno, Railla Veronica D. (2020): A Rights-Based Approach to Governance of Climate Geoengineering. In ELR 10744.

"This Article explores a rights-based approach for the governance of geoengineering in international law, including the impetus, rationale, and options for implementation. The approach would take into account the need for participation, accountability, nondiscrimination, and equality in its development and deployment, while addressing the potential of such technologies in mitigating the impacts that climate change would have to the full enjoyment of human rights, including the right to a healthy environment."

Horton, Joshua B.; Koremenos, Barbara (2020): Steering and Influence in Transnational Climate Governance: Nonstate Engagement in Solar Geoengineering Research

Horton, Joshua B.; Koremenos, Barbara (2020): Steering and Influence in Transnational Climate Governance: Nonstate Engagement in Solar Geoengineering Research. In Global Environmental Politics 20 (3), pp. 93–111. DOI: 10.1162/glep_a_00572.

"Theorists of transnational climate governance (TCG) seek to account for the increasing involvement of nonstate and substate actors in global climate policy. While transnational actors have been present in the emerging field of solar geoengineering—a novel technology intended to reflect a fraction of sunlight back to space to reduce climate impacts—many of their most significant activities, including knowledge dissemination, scientific capacity building, and conventional lobbying, are not captured by the TCG framework."
