    The UNU Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), together with the Global Environmental Outreach Centre (GEOC), will organise an international symposium, “Achieving SDG 13: Climate Change and the Republic of Kiribati.

    Small Island States are exposed to an increasing threat of coastal erosion due to climate change and sea-level rise. The Republic of Kiribati, a nation in the central Pacific Ocean comprising 33 atolls and reef islands, is faced with extensive coastal erosion.

    This symposium will explore such challenges with invited representatives from the Kiribati government and a nongovernmental organisation. It will also include a presentation on the UNU-IAS Low-Carbon Technology Transfer Project, and will discuss partnerships to accelerate the commitment to the Sustainable Development Goal 13 and the Paris Agreement.
