Integrating physical, engineering and social sciences to construct a framework for assessing effectiveness and side effects of geoengineering proposals.


What have we learned?

Watch our Principal Investigator Professor Piers Forster describe the main findings of the Integrated Assessment of Geoengineering Proposals (IAGP) project:

Our key findings are presented in a series of Briefing Notes

Briefing note 1  Briefing note 2

Briefing note 3  Briefing note 4

We have also produced a special feedback briefing note for members of the public that outlines the key outcomes of our public engagement.

On 26th November 2014, three geoengineering research projects, IAGP, SPICE and CGG, held a joint event, Geoengineering Research: Where Next?, at The Royal Society in London to disseminate our research findings. 

Read the press release for the dissemination event.
