Description

In a globalized and interconnected world subject to climatic and financial crises, islands are facing unprecedented challenges – whether from increasingly unpredictable and severe weather, rising sea levels, or due to geographical isolation and economic vulnerability. The Opening session will give an overview of what’s happening during the week of the Forum and will be followed by a networking session.
