This event is open to the public — email Kristen Cuzzo to register.
This panel discussion will address the current projections for climate change-related sea-level rise during the 21st century, the status of measures being taken to address the consequences of rising sea-levels, and further responses that may be possible going forward. Particular attention will paid to the effects of sea-level rise on small low-lying island states, including the well-being of their residents and their right to self-determination under international law if their territory is inundated by water.
