Prospects for Global Coordination in an Age of Pandemics and Emerging Climate Technologies
Static Preview

Much like efforts to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, combatting climate change requires cooperation on a global scale. And yet the history of international climate negotiations shows just how difficult that cooperation can be.

At the same time, new technologies to alter the climate are emerging, posing their own challenges to multilateralism. What, if anything, can we learn from the global response to the pandemic that might aid us in governing new, climate-altering technologies? What functions and mechanisms are needed? How important is leadership in not only responding to, but anticipating and preparing for these global challenges? What role do ethics play in governance decisions?

These are challenges the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G) knows well. Their work is focused on catalyzing the creation of effective and inclusive governance for emerging technologies that would seek to deliberately alter the one atmosphere we all share. For the past three years, they've met with senior decision-makers around the world in national governments, the UN system and civil society, urging them to explore questions such as risk management and transparent global monitoring and reporting before events overtake.

Thelma Krug: Governing Emerging Marine Climate-Altering Techniques
Static Preview

On 7 December 2019, C2G convened an official UNFCCC COP25 side event on governing emerging marine climate-altering techniques. Thelma Krug, Vice Chair, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), participated in a panel discussion.

The research and potential use of marine climate-altering techniques are being discussed in the context of the Paris agreement and the ocean’s role in achieving it. None of these techniques are ready at scale. All pose significant technological and governance challenges, which need to be addressed and require the attention of stakeholders.
