The Climate Geoengineering Governance (CGG) project is a collaboration between the Universities of Oxford and Sussex and University College London, working between July 2012 and September 2014. The project is funded by two UK Research Councils: Economic and Social (ESRC), and Arts and Humanities (AHRC).
This website is designed to give you an opportunity to engage with our programme of work, its products and its events. As background you may find it useful to understand why we think it timely and important to research this subject , and to know something of one of the early foundations of our work, the Oxford Principles on Geoengineering Governance.
CGG ran its first workshop at St Anne’s College, Oxford, on 18/19 March 2013. This workshop took place in month 9 of the project – roughly a third of the way through. Its broad aims were to put the CGG project in its academic and policy context, by tapping into the perspectives of a distinguished group of international participants. More specifically, we sought feedback on the three work packages – on framing, on ethics and on legal and regulatory issues – which we have pursued in the first phase of our work, and to consult on aspects of the research to be pursued in the next period.
