The event will feature a 90-minute program from the U.S. Center at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Cancun, followed by 60 minutes of moderated discussion with participants from government, NGOs, and academia.  The Cancun program focuses on the impacts to communities of rising sea levels along the coast. An international audience and panel of experts will exchange information about vulnerability assessments, tools, and methodologies that are being used by coastal communities to understand and reduce their vulnerability to natural hazards and to sustain their way of life and the ecosystem habitats and services on which they depend.
