Sea level rise is one of the most serious consequences of climate change and it will have a profound effect on San Mateo County which has more people and property at risk from the rising sea than any other Bay Area county.

At the local, regional, state and federal levels a great deal of effort is being focused on evaluating the challenges presented by sea level rise and effective means to respond and adapt.

In the coming months, additional events, forums  and efforts will be taking place locally to address this critical issue.
