Harvard Solar Geoengineering Research Program Announces Solar Radiation Modification (SRM) Workshop with Resources for the Future

The joint workshop, planned for September 2024, aims to spark and accelerate research on the social and economic dimensions of SRM.
May 10, 2024

As climate impacts accelerate, solar radiation modification (SRM) may be pursued by governments, corporations, or others acting in cooperation with – or without the cooperation of – the international community. High-quality academic research on the social and economic dimensions of SRM will be critical as various actors consider SRM as a potential contribution to broader efforts to reduce climate change risk.

In September 2024, the Harvard Solar Geoengineering Research Program and Resources for the Future will jointly host a social science workshop to spark and accelerate research in this important area. The workshop will gather researchers working on a wide range of topics related to cooperative vs. non-cooperative SRM interventions, including moral hazard risk, emerging norms, public attitudes, international security implications, governance and institutional design, and much more.
