The 5th Meeting of ECRA Collaborative Programme Sea Level Change and Coastal Impacts (CP SLC) on 11 July 18.00-19.30 in New York was a side meeting of the International Conference on Regional Sea level change**. This meeting intended to discuss strategic developments of the CP SLC and investigate links to related initiatives. Particular topics for the discussion focussed on:  


CP SLC Activities: Past and Future

The General Assembly 2017 has been a very successful meeting arena for scientists, politicians and stakeholders. The community agreed to improve the interaction with stakeholders and social scientists in the future. This includes further outreach events addressed to specific stakeholder groups. Next ECRA SCL meeting is planned during the conference ‘Sea Level Futures’ taking place in Liverpool July 2–4th 2018 (https://conference.noc.ac.uk/sea-level-futures-2018).

CP SLC Strategy document

The CP SLC Plan should be advanced and should include tasks related to the previous CP Strategy, including social scientists and services provided to stakeholders. This may include a list of scientists with expertise and possible services to be published on the website. This should be developed in ongoing workshops organised for both, scientists and stakeholders.

EU COST action

ECRA scientists are interested in developing a COST action proposal to be submitted in 2018. A network linking different communities is of high interest to sea level scientists. Interested people in COST action are kindly asked to contact the CP coordinators Jan Even Nilsen and Gianmaria Sannino (This email address is being protected from spambots.
