On Thursday 15 July 2021, SRMGI (the Degrees Initiative) in partnership with the African Climate and Development Initiative and Climate System Analysis Group at the University of Cape Town ran a two-hour long virtual workshop on SRM aimed at stakeholders from the Southern African region.
The workshop served as a platform for an introductory discussion on SRM, introducing its science and socio-political implications and featuring presentations from the University of Cape Town’s DECIMALS team members. In a second part, the presentations made way for group discussions among the participants, first in small groups, followed by a plenary session to conclude the event. The participants endeavored to review the risks and benefits of SRM and reflected on how the Southern African region may engage with the issue.
