Several of the key, recurring questions which loom over climate engineering concern how countries would interact when some of them undertake or approve actions which might impact other countries.

It closes with a brief synthesis and some recommendations for future developments. First, though, it introduces international law, and suggests why climate engineering is such a challenge for international environmental law and its scholars.
