The increasing rise in global mean sea level represents one of the most compelling consequences of climate change as well as one of the most critical issues for Pacific Island Countries and Territories. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), sea level rise is expected to cause significant negative impacts on small islands and combined with extreme flooding events, could threaten the future livelihoods of Pacific coastal communities.

To promote exchange of experiences, good practices and solutions to these challenges, SPREP, the Pacific Climate Change Centre, and the Sea’ties project of the Ocean & Climate Platform, are organising a regional workshop "Adapting coastal cities and territories to sea level rise in the Pacific". This workshop will be held from the 10th to the 12th of July 2023, in Nadi, Fiji.
