We aim to produce research that advances solar geoengineering’s science and technology frontier, publishing high-impact papers, and disseminating ideas that are taken up by other researchers and government research programs.
To take an active stance on research with a unique mandate to develop new path-breaking technologies that might improve solar geoengineering’s effectiveness and reduce its risks.
To Employ Harvard’s convening power to bring together scientists, environmental leaders, and government officials to discuss the technology and its governance.
What is Geoengineering?
Geoengineering refers to a set of emerging technologies that could manipulate the environment and partially offset some of the impacts of climate change.
Solar geoengineering in particular could not be a replacement for reducing emissions (mitigation) or coping with a changing climate (adaptation); yet, it could supplement these efforts.
