"African Involvement in Solar Geoengineering" was a half day workshop held in conjunction with the 24th Colloquium of African Geology (CAG24). The African Academy of Sciences (AAS) and SRMGI also co-convened this workshop. Participants from outside the CAG24 event were welcome to attend.

The short session emphasized participant dialogue, with small group discussions and exercises designed to elicit views on how/if research should proceed, what regulations are needed, and the role African scientists, NGOs and policymakers can play in global geoengineering discussions. Participants had an opportunity to review outcomes and build on the momentum of a similar meeting convened by the AAS in June 2012 in Dakar, Senegal: “Governance of Solar Radiation Management (SRM) Research: African Perspectives” and in November 2012 in Boksburg, South Africa “Solar Geoengineering: Research, Governance, and African Involvement.”
