This chapter examines the role of geoengineering in the mitigation of climate change. It begins with an overview of the state of geoengineering science before turning to the politics of geoengineering, with particular emphasis on scientific assessment and regulation and the need for regulatory treaties. It argues that norms to govern deployment of geoengineering systems are necessary, which might arise through intensive research organised by the academies of sciences in key countries.
