This talk with Robert Nicholls will explore the magnitude and sources of sea-level rise, the resulting impacts and what the potential responses in terms of climate mitigation and the range of possible adaptation are. Join to hear about the global perspective of all coastal areas, with a particular consideration of the effects on coastal cities and communities and what needs to be done to address these challenges.
