Craik, Neil (2015): International EIA Law and Geoengineering: Do Emerging Technologies Require Special Rules? (forthcoming).

"This article explores the adequacy of the international rules on environmental impact assessment (EIA) to contribute to geoengineering governance with a focus on three fundamental challenges. First, the near universal trigger for EIA is the likelihood of significant environmental impact, which may prove to be insufficiently precautionary in light of current risk preferences surrounding geoengineering. Second, the scope of EIA has traditionally focused narrowly on the assessment of direct physical impacts, however many of the concerns that geoengineering research raises relate to environmental and social risks associated with downstream technological implications."
