Antarctica and Overshoot Scenarios: Risks of Irreversible Sea-level Rise

COP26 side event
3 November 2021
15:00 – 16:15 Skomer (Multimedia Studio 2)

Recent published research shows the danger of massive, potentially irreversible, global sea-level rise within the next couple of centuries should temperatures overshoot 2°C. SCAR and IPCC scientists provide a clear-eyed look at risks from Antarctica and implications for SIDS and future generations.

Speakers: SCAR Scientific Research Programme leaders (including IPCC SROCC, SR1.5 and AR6 lead authors on Antarctic ice loss and committed sea level rise even with later CDR), representatives of SIDS nations and Youth constituencies, 1.5 emissions pathways experts.
