Waterloo researcher Juan Moreno-Cruz is part of interdisciplinary committee releasing new report “Reflecting Sunlight: Recommendations for Solar Geoengineering Research and Research Governance”

Waterloo’s Moreno-Cruz is a member of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) committee who developed the report on Solar Geoengineering (SG). Juan is a Professor in the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development and a member of Waterloo’s Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3).

The report examines the current understanding of the potential risks and benefits of three proposed SG strategies and makes recommendations for how to establish a research program, a research agenda, and mechanisms for governing this research.
