SRMGI will be able to expand its work through 2021 thanks to a new grant from SilverLining’s Safe Climate Research Initiative.
In June, Beninese oceanographer Dr Casimir Y. Da-Allada was lead author on the first SRM modelling paper to come from a Least Developed Country. We recently had a chance to catch up with him.
SRMGI planned to hold its second Global Forum in Berlin, Germany on 5 and 6 October 2020. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, it was decided to postpone the Global Forum to Spring 2021.
In September 2019, SRMGI’s Project Director Andy Parker was invited to present to the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s panel on SRM governance.
In January, global SRM research reached an important milestone: the publication of the world’s first African research paper on solar geoengineering.
January saw a landmark for the global evaluation of SRM and also a landmark for SRMGI. A research team based at the University of Cape Town published the first African research paper on SRM, and first to come from SRMGI’s DECIMALS Fund.
