Summary

Arctic ice is melting fast, transforming coastlines and multiplying risks around the world.

Since the United States assumed Chairmanship of the eight-nation Arctic Council for the period 2015-2017, the U.S. State Department has highlighted how ice melting in the Arctic affects people, infrastructure and ecosystems worldwide, multiplying risks around the world.

The meeting will convene leading researchers, decision-makers, and other interested stakeholders to discuss the state of sea-level rise science, and how public policy and private adaptation efforts can lessen the impacts everywhere.
