Environmental NGOs are a primary source of information for the public on environmental issues, and play an important role shaping public thinking on conversations and decisions around climate change. As the public learns more about climate engineering technologies, they will look to ENGOs to understand what the policy issues are, and understand how these ideas fit in, it at all, with a climate change response portfolio.
The Forum for Climate Engineering Assessment works with and advises environmental NGOs on climate engineering, without advocating for any particular policy agenda for or against research into these technologies. We work to help these groups understand the risks and potential benefits, both in terms of physical impact as well as political and social impact.
