Climate change and sea level rise by 2100: How do we deal with it? (20 november 2018, The Hague)
Each year, the French and the German Embassy together with other partners organize an event to bring awareness to the consequences of climate change. This year, following the publication of IPCC experts, the launching of the new Global Commission on Adaptation in the Netherlands and the call of governments to act on the challenges of climate change, the joint event will focus on sea level rise.
This phenomenon now appears to be one of the major pressures whose magnitude and long-term effects are difficult to anticipate.
Under the heading “Climate change and sea level rise by 2100: How do we deal with it?” our panelists from France, Germany and the Netherlands will share their work and their views followed by an interactive exchange with the audience.
