SRMGI Conference 2011

22-24 March, 2011 | PDF Conference agenda | Background papers »

The SRMGI Conference operated under the premise that achieving consensus was not the goal.  The participants were not asked to agree as a group.  Many legitimate but competing views exist surrounding solar radiation management; the conference was organized to explore those different viewpoints and to record them.  The conference operated under Chatham House rules, which means that viewpoints expressed go unattributed.  The meeting notes below reflect this rule.
