By order of the Alliance for UPEACE Oscar Langerak produced and directed this movie with Monica Ruiz van Hattem and the Antenne TV collective.
This conference addressed the need to build capacities for proactive local leadership to address the risks of climate warming, particularly in vulnerable island and coastal states.
Climate warming and sea level rise present complex environmental security risks in every region of the world. For island and low-lying countries, hazardous conditions include flooding, coastal erosion, salination of fresh water resources, loss of biodiversity, drought, and extreme weather events. Communities coping with poverty are particularly vulnerable.
To enhance local capacities for climate adaptation, distinguished technical experts, policy makers, scholars, and community leaders engaged in a variety of interactive learning activities. The program included guest speakers, working groups, panel discussions, networking opportunities and resource displays.
Key questions to address during the conference included:
The conference was unique in offering island and coastal representatives a leadership role in the discussion of geographic and cultural realities, coastal and water management issues, disaster preparedness and response, emerging strategies and technologies, and institutional cooperation. In addition, interactive sessions provided opportunities to learn from those addressing climate issues in other geographic areas.
