Final workshop on global coastal climate services: report and presentations

The final workshop on global coastal climate services of the INSeaPTION project was held on June 9th, 2020. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, this workshop could not be organised in Berlin as initially planned and was organised virtually by GCF and INSeaPTION partners. 

The report of this workshop is now available as well as the presentations.

The first section of the report introduces the workshop concept note. The workshop focused on further developing and refining a typology of global decisions requiring sea-level rise information developed in the INSeaPTION project. This typology is thus presented in the second section of the Report. Structured around this typology of global decisions, the workshop brought together 25 coastal and sea-level rise experts and stakeholders from both the public and private sectors in a range of different country contexts with the aim of sharing experiences and insights on Global Coastal Climate Services. Section 3 thus reports on roundtable discussions in the workshop focused on the typology and future global coastal climate service development. Key new additions to the typology where suggestions to include a developing country national planning perspective, a focus on system relevant actors for global trade and food security, and a focus on financial regulations in the context of increased attention to corporate disclosures of physical risks.
