Building on the success of the Sea Level 2017 Conference in New York, the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) Grand Challenge on "Regional Sea-Level Change and Coastal Impacts" will hold the Sea Level 2022 conference from 11 to 15 July 2022 in Singapore. This falls three years after the IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC) report, one year after the publication of the new IPCC WG1 AR6 report, and at a time of growing focus on taking action in coastal communities to adapt to rising seas.

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.

Sea-level rise is an existential threat to Singapore, where a third of the island is already below 5 metres above mean sea level. In Singapore, information on future sea levels is critical for coastal development, adaptation, and planning.

The Conference will include participation on-site but will also utilise state-of-the-art remote participation options to ensure inclusion and engagement. Details of the conference programme and its format will be provided soon.
