CRM in Coastal Zones – Bonn

17 June 2019 @ 09:00 - 15:00 UTC+0

Expert Dialogue on technologies for averting, minimizing and addressing loss and damage in coastal zones

Coastal zones are sensitive to climate change risks. Coastal areas face a range of challenges such as inundation and erosion of coastlines, salinization of freshwater reserves, damage and loss of physical infrastructure and degradation of marine ecosystem as well as non-economic losses to coastal communities and ecosystems.

Impacts of such risks are unevenly distributed within and across different communities, countries and regions due to climate-related disruptions, exposure and vulnerability. Some climate change risks may be unforeseeable at the time of planning, foreseen but retained due to resource constraints or socioeconomic impact tradeoffs, or foreseen but unavoidable because response actions are unfeasible. Despite these challenges, the accessibility and availability of appropriate and adequate technologies (i.e. hardware, software, and orgware) may be able to avert, minimize, and address some of these risks in coastal areas.

The Expert Dialogue will take place in the context of the Bonn Climate Change Conference- June 2019.
