Advisory Group

The Advisory Group consists of a diverse set of eminent researchers and practitioners in the science, policy, and civil society communities, who are engaged in discussions relevant to climate engineering. The Advisory Group will provide recommendations to the Steering Committee. The Advisory Group will not have a dedicated in-person meeting as a whole group, but will be consulted by the Steering Committee at regular intervals during the conference planning process. The input requested from the Advisory Group will depend on the progress of the Steering Committee; furthermore, the Advisory Group members are welcome to provide their input through the Advisory Group and/or Steering Committee chair at any time.
