This chapter considers the potential for tensions between the United Natesion Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) regimes relating to disputes at the intersection of climate change and ocean governance, using geoengineering as a case study. The chapter explores the substantive commitments relevant to geoengineering and existing dispute resolutions mechanisms under the two regimes. It considers where tension, conflict, and overlap may arise, and how they may be resolved in various forums, such as the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) and the International Court of Justice (ICJ). The discussion includes description of particular geoengineering methods, including direct carbon dioxide removal (CDR), and solar radiation management (SRM).
