A Matter of Scale: Regional Climate Engineering and the Shortfalls of Multinational Governance

Tracy Hester


Debates over climate engineering governance tend to assume this technology is an allor- nothing affair that produces inherently global effects which intentionally can reach any nation or population. With the emergence of possible regional climate engineering methods that seek to limit their effects to relatively local areas, this governance debate may find itself left behind in some instances by disruptively novel technological options. If so, regional climate engineering may fit better under a combination of local transnational mechanisms and bilateral treaties rather than the existing broad-scale multinational frameworks available under multilateral treaties such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
