Decimals Fund: Solar Radiation Management Governance Initiative (SRMGI)

"Launched in April 2018, the DECIMALS Fund (Developing Country Impacts Modelling Analysis for SRM) is the world’s first international SRM modelling fund and the first exclusively for scientists from the Global South. From 2018 to 2020, the DECIMALS Fund will distribute more than $430,000 of grants to support Southern scientists as they research how solar radiation management geoengineering (SRM) could affect some of the world’s poorest countries and most climate-vulnerable regions."
