Climate Change and Geoengineering | Khara Grieger, 2/26 Colloquium

Governance Strategies for Emerging Risks of Solar Radiation Management - Decision-makers may soon need to consider other options than mitigation and adaptation to deal with impacts from global climate change.

NASEM Report on Biotech for Forest Health | Jason Delborne, 2/19 Colloquium

In 2018, the NASEM formed a committee of experts to explore the potential for biotechnology to address forest health, focused on threats from pests and pathogens, and considered challenges and opportunities of biotech trees (genetically engineered or gene-edited) as solutions.

Editing Nature: Governance hurdles and ethical holes | Natalie Kofler, 2/12 Colloquium

Dr. Natalie Kofler will describe her and co-authors' vision for a coordinated global governance model of genetically engineered wild species that integrates local community decision-making in ways that are both context-dependent and global in scope.

Governance of Gene-Edited Crops | Jennifer Kuzma, 2/5 Colloquium

Join us for a discussion of Dr. Kuzma's article, Regulating Gene-Edited Crops (Issues), which reviews the current state of regulation, illuminating the ways in which technology developers are repeating practices that may lead to the public and ethical failures of the first generation genetically engineered crops.
