“Convention on the Prohibition of Military or any other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques”, or “ENMOD Convention”, is the only international instrument regulating technology and technics capable of artificially altering the climate today. ENMOD has been cast aside the international community’s security priorities in a context where climate change did not yet feature highly in its agenda. In the face of vast and new opportunities offered to the military by the technological advances in such fields as “geo-engineering” and which have the potential to upset already fragile ecological balances, it has become urgent to review ENMOD.
