Communities living in coastal regions face existential risks due to climate change. Currently, around 40% of the world's population lives within 100 kilometers of a coast, putting them on the frontlines of climate change’s worst impacts. The latest IPCC report underscored what communities living on the edge between land and sea have long known: Without deep cuts to emissions, their prospects are "dismal."
In this introductory webinar, coastal resilience experts discussed the importance of understanding coastal risk, the solutions and challenges to achieving coastal resilience and just a few of the important coastal topics journalists should be covering in 2022.
