“New governance institutions or mechanisms may be needed to restrain harmful or unjust use of SRM, ensure that any deployment is beneficial and just, and assess and minimize any countervailing harms. Existing international governance aimed at addressing climate change and its impacts may offer some useful mechanisms, but currently appears to be inadequately designed for addressing SRM and its distinctive characteristics. As an attempt to restrain the imposition of global risks through hasty or unwise action, governance of SRM may be more analogous to arms control agreements than environmental treaties.” -p.46 LINK
