Rising Coastlines, Surging Threats

Mar 16, 2021

10:15am – 11:10am CT

Sea-level rise is already impacting coastlines around the world, from island nations preparing for potential relocation to low-lying communities experiencing damaging coastal flooding that is threatening infrastructure. Scientists are working to predict storm surge events and understand future sea-level rise scenarios, while cities, countries and leaders face difficult and costly decisions about adaptation, retreat, and armoring the coastline. This panel will discuss the challenges communities are facing, adaptation strategies, and how science can inform action.
