Teleconference to plan The Sea Level Conference 2022

The WCRP “Regional Sea Level Change and Coastal Impacts” Grand Challenge is organizing the Sea Level 2022 Conference to be held in Singapore, 11-15 July 2022. In order to continue its planning, some members from the Local Organizing Committee: Robert.Nicholls, Wal, R.S.W. van de (Roderik), Aurel MOISE, Svetlana Jevrejeva, Benjamin P. Horton, Kathy Mcinnes, David Behar and Jose Santos held a teleconference on 6th May.

Building on the success of the Sea Level 2017 Meeting in New York, the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) Grand Challenge on “Regional Sea-Level Change and Coastal Impacts” will hold the Sea Level 2022 meeting in Singapore. This is three years after the IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC) report and one year after the publication of the new IPCC WG1 AR6 report. The conference will provide an opportunity to share the present status of climate-related sea-level research, and will have a strong focus on the application of sea-level science for adaptation and stakeholder needs. The conference will consider the future of sea-level rise research within the new structures of the WRCP with Lighthouse Activities and safe landing as new flagship activities.
