The Sea Level Rise Conference 2022 aims to assess the available and required scientific knowledge on regional-local sea level change in Europe, policy development and implementation with up-to-date geographical and contextual detail, by bringing together researchers, stakeholders and policy professionals. The intended key outcome will entail a first assessment report for easy access to regularly updated and usable knowledge on regional-local sea level change in Europe. This intends to complement existing global and European assessments by providing additional geographical and contextual detail, tailored to policy development and implementation. Through a diverse set of keynotes, panels, and other sessions, the conference will put the needs and involvement of policy making and coastal planning at the center of exchanges on regional to local sea level changes in Europe.
The conference has been endorsed as an Ocean Decade activity under the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. As an Ocean Decade activity, we contribute to the Ocean Decade Challenges and help further the science we need for the ocean we want.
The pan-European Conference on Sea Level Rise will be organized under the framework of the JPI Climate - JPI Oceans Knowledge Hub on Sea Level Rise. The conference has been endorsed as an Ocean Decade activity under the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. It is organized by JPI Climate and JPI Oceans in partnership with its Italian partners: CORILA, CMCC, OGS. The conference is sponsored by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research.
