On Friday 8 April, 2016, The Antarctic Report hosted a conference in New Zealand's largest city, Auckland, called Sea Level Rise: Implementing Adaptation Strategies. The conference brought together international experts, as well as New Zealand’s leading policy makers, scientists and key industry representatives, to showcase effective adaptation strategies to manage the impact of sea level rise in New Zealand.
Professor Jonathan Bamber of the University of Bristol, was the keynote speaker at the event. In this video of his presentation, Professor Bamber discusses the latest global sea level rise projections, regional projections for the Western Pacific, where the uncertainties lie in modelling such projections, and how the wider effects of sea level rise will impact New Zealand.
