The RSIS Centre for NTS Studies, in cooperation with the Oxford Geoengineering Programme –an initiative of the Oxford Martin School at the University of Oxford – and the Solar Radiation Management Governance Initiative (SRMGI) – an international NGO project co-convened by The Royal Society (UK), Environmental Defense Fund (US), and TWAS (The Academy of Sciences for the Developing World) –  convened a pilot workshop on geoengineering governance at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore on 18–19 July 2011.

The purpose of this meeting was to explore how geoengineering – the deliberate large-scale intervention in the Earth's natural systems to counteract climate change – is framed in Asia and the governance issues associated with any such research, potential development and deployment.  The aim was to bring together academics, policymakers and civil society stakeholders from across the region to participate in this debate.

The pilot workshop was the first of several such meetings to broaden the discourse on geoengineering, which has thus far been largely confined to Europe and North America.
