The Conference will include participation on-site but will also utilise state-of-the-art remote participation options to ensure inclusion and engagement.
Dates: 12 - 16 July 2022
Venue: Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
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.

As the inevitable need to adapt to rising seas gains increased attention globally, this conference will bring together those delivering the response to this threat in their communities – practitioners -- with those helping frame the nature and timing of this threat – scientists. Engagement in Singapore by the practitioner community will be informed by both the literature and by a global, practitioner-led preparatory workshop held in February 2022, intentionally developed to inform Sea Level 2022, that will assess the state of practice and identify paths forward in the myriad of contexts that protect lives, property, and natural systems. Five major themes will be considered via talks and panels with details being finalized after the insights from the February workshop.
