Rising sea levels are expected to spark the largest movement of displaced people in human history. The geo-political challenge of rising waters and homeless populations is vast. Could this be the most challenging issue currently facing humanity? The most severely affected areas are within our region. How will this affect Australia? What are we doing to prepare?
Dr MA Quassem, an expert on water management and the Chair of the Disaster Management Committee from Bangladesh, one of the most seriously affected countries; Professor Fran Baum, Director of the Southgate Institute of Health, Society and Equity; and Brian Caton an expert on sea level rise generally and locally, will offer their informed perspectives.
