The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $76,234 to the Forum for Climate Engineering Assessment (FCEA) to fund a convening of its academic working group on climate engineering governance.
FCEA is a group based at American University (AU) that works on governance of climate engineering. It has assembled a working group on governance of climate engineering that includes academics from various fields and countries (primarily the U.S., but also the Netherlands, Brazil, China, and Germany). The first convening of this working group was held in March, and FCEA plans to hold a second in September. This grant is intended to fund a third meeting, which FCEA plans to hold in early 2017.
