Advancing Science, Connecting Society
The conference will provide an opportunity to share the present status and future of climate-related sea-level research with a strong focus on the application of sea-level science for adaptation and stakeholder needs. Given the critical need for risk assessment and coastal adaptation, it will include direct participation by a global cross-section of both leading sea level researchers and adaptation practitioners. The conference will feature a robust conversation between these communities to inform efforts to bridge science and society at this critical moment, including consideration of the new structure of WCRP.
State of the Art from Science

Leading climate experts from around the world will share the latest science behind sea level projections.

Practitioner Perspectives

Stakeholders will share the state of practice and identify paths forward to protect lives, property, and natural systems.

Field Trips

Take part in an exciting programme of field trips to coastal locations in and around Singapore.

Early Career Grants

If you're an Early Career Researcher, especially from Southeast Asia, you will be eligible for a grant to attend the conference.

“The Conference will include participation on-site but will also utilise state-of-the-art remote participation options to ensure inclusion and engagement.”
