Speakers: Bob Kopp, Marjolijn Haasnoot, Karina Von Schuckmann, Gonéri Le Cozannet, Rosh Ranasinghe, Gaël Durand, Robert Nicholls (TBC), Saiful Islam (TBC), Elham Eli (TBC), and Sarah Cooley (TBC).

This event will present key statements on sea-level rise from the Working Group I and II reports, including adaptation challenges. Authors of the report will present the latest projections, where to find and how to interpret data, and how practitioners can understand sea-level rise projections, including low-likelihood/high impact projections and their use in adaptation. The event will be concluded by the presentation of the policy brief of PROTECT.

Mandatory registration:

PROTECT webinar: 12 December 2022 – 3 pm CET – Roderik van de Wal

High-end sea-level projections for practitioners

Recently a paper has been published addressing high-end sea-level projections for practitioners. It was a community effort combining scientists and practitioners and builds on a framework of discussing multiple lines of physical evidence. The approach is complementary to the IPCC AR6 report and provides physically plausible high-end scenarios. As the difficulty in formulating high-end is related to the cryospheric component it seems appropriate to have a discussion within Protect how we can improve future high-end projections. In the webinar we will discuss the limitations of the current set-up and explore possibilities for glaciers, greenland and Antarctica how to improve the projections. Furthermore we will consider whether we can address different time scales and scenarios and additional needs from practitioners.
