Sea’Ties: At the Frontline of Coastal Adaptation

Time and date: Weds 6 Dec, 11:00-12:00 Location: Ocean Pavilion


Sea-level rise projections conceal many uncertainties, including time scales or regional variations. Yet, up to a billion people could be living in coastal cities at risk from sea-level rise and its impacts (e.g., salinization, flooding, erosion) by 2050. This side event will address the pillars of sustainable coastal adaptation for cities: knowledge, solutions, equity, and finance. Experts will share good practices from regional perspectives, as well as challenges and ways forward.
