Sea Level Rise Planning Webinar by Dr. Bruce C. Glavovic
Presentation slides from the online lecture given by Massey University Professor Dr Bruce Glavovic on sea level rise. The seminar was part of the Massey University Planning Programme's Weekly Planning Seminar Series 2020.

The presentation focuses on the challenge of responding to rising sea levels. It provides an overview of key findings from recent IPCC Special Reports, focusing on insights from the chapter on sea-level rise in the Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate released in September 2019. Enabling conditions for navigating the reality of sea-level rise in the short-, medium- and long-terms are outlined. Key questions are posed for communities and their governing authorities in Aotearoa-New Zealand to consider.
