Talk Synopsis & Video Recording

SEA’TIES is an international initiative under the Ocean & Climate Platform, which aims to facilitate coastal cities and territories’ adaptation to sea level rise. It will contribute to democratizing scientific knowledge and promote the implication of stakeholders across sectors and at all levels of decision making, to support the development of fair and sound adaptation policies. One month ago, an inventory of the actions already implemented has been launched in order to provide policy makers and stakeholders with concrete feedback. The challenge now is to build a tool well adapted to the needs of policy makers.
