OECD Green Talks LIVE: Responding to Rising Seas
Description:
Coastal regions are extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, due to their exposure to the combined effects of sea level rise and intense storm events. Coastal risks are set to intensify in the future, with the potential to bring unprecedented costs to livelihoods and economies. 

How can governments identify, prepare for and respond to these risks? 

Join Lisa Danielson of the OECD Environment Directorate and Alexander Bisaro of the Global Climate Forum on 6 March at 17:00 CET / 11:00 EST to discuss how OECD countries are responding to these risks, and what more could be done in the future. The presentation will be based on the forthcoming OECD report Responding to Rising Seas: OECD countries’ approaches to tackling coastal risks.  

Duration: 1 hour (20/30 minutes presentation followed by Q&A)
