WEBINAR Video recording: responding to rising seas
Coastal regions are extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, due to their exposure to the combined effects of sea level rise and intense storm events. Coastal risks are set to intensify in the future, with the potential to bring unprecedented costs to livelihoods and economies.
How can governments identify, prepare for and respond to these risks?
On 6 March 2019, Lisa Danielson of the OECD Environment Directorate and Alexander Bisaro of the Global Climate Forum discussed how OECD countries are responding to these risks, and what more could be done in the future.
The presentation was based on the OECD report Responding to Rising Seas: OECD Country Approaches to Tackling Coastal Risks.

» What economic mechanisms drive material use and how will this affect the environment?
On 18 February 2019, our team of experts of the OECD Environment Directorate debated on the projections for materials use to 2060.
