Online seminars form part of lifelong learning resources we offer to the Institute's Alumni and Partners. The one-hour seminars feature webcast interactive lectures and discussions. Organized by IHE Delft in collaboration with The Water Channel, the seminars focus on topics selected to suit the interests of alumni and partners, but they are of interest also to a broader audience – feel free to invite colleagues and others who may be interested. Participation is free.

After the seminar, a recording will be published on the IHE Delft alumni webpage, IHE Delft's YouTube channel and the WaterChannel. Earlier seminars are available via this link

The seminar by Prof. Roshanka Ranasinghe, Coordinating Lead Author of the IPCC AR6 WGI report, will summarise the key findings on Sea level rise and how 33 different climatic hazards (i.e. climatic impact-drivers) are projected to change in 44 different sub-regions of the world.
