European Knowledge Hub on Sea Level Rise

Joint Programming Initiative Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans (JPI Oceans) - Belgium

Arctic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea, North Atlantic Ocean, Other, Project, Unlock ocean-based solutions to climate change

The Knowledge Hub on Sea Level Rise (KH SLR) is a joint effort by JPI Climate and JPI Oceans on regional to local sea level changes in Europe.

It is a networking platform to promote generation, synthesis and exchange of scientific knowledge on regional and global, historic and future sea level rise, specifically addressing knowledge needs for societal policy makers. Currently the Hub brings together 50+ experts from nine European member countries.

The KH SLR aims to support the development and implementation of sea level-related policies, by facilitating the interaction between research and policy professionals, and stakeholders with different disciplinary backgrounds and expertise. It adopts a cooperative and interdisciplinary approach to transfer knowledge, aiming to provide more frequent, detailed and regional-scaled assessments of sea level rise and its impacts to enable policy makers to make informed decisions on protective and adaptive measures needed at the regional and local level.

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme CoastPredict – Observing and Predicting the Global Coastal Ocean
