Webinar: Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate Change in Islands, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM IST

4:00 am to 5:00 am (Asia/Kolkata)
Event location 
The Energy and Resources Institute

Islands are heterogeneous in geomorphology, culture, ecosystems, populations, hence are vulnerable to climate change. Climate change impacts, such as sea level rise are paramount and uncontested for these regions. However, the question arises that does physical vulnerability alone characterize climate change impacts for these regions? In this hour long webinar you will:

  • Learn about the physical impacts of climate change on islands along with the observed and projected changes for the future;
  • Gain knowledge on what makes islands a hotspot for vulnerability to climate change;
  • Get to know whether the tag of 'sinking islands' and 'climate refugees' resonate with ground perspectives; and
  • Get an overview of the role of 'in situ climate adaptation'.
