Sea Level Rise (SLR):

Sea level rise refers to the long-term increase in the average level of the Earth’s oceans and is primarily caused by the melting of glaciers and ice sheets, as well as the thermal expansion of seawater due to global warming.

Assessment Report (AR):

An Assessment Report, often referred to as AR, is a comprehensive scientific evaluation conducted by international organizations or research institutions to assess and summarize the state of knowledge on a particular topic. In the context of sea level rise, ARs provide updated information, projections, and potential impacts based on the latest scientific research.

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC):

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a United Nations body comprising scientists and experts from around the world. It is responsible for assessing scientific research on climate change, including sea level rise, and providing policymakers with objective and policy-relevant information through its Assessment Reports.

Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSP):

Shared Socioeconomic Pathways are a set of scenarios developed by the scientific community to explore and assess potential future socioeconomic and environmental conditions. SSPs provide a framework for integrating socio-economic narratives with climate change projections and are used in climate change research to understand the possible impacts of different societal development pathways on greenhouse gas emissions, adaptation, and mitigation strategies. They help researchers and policymakers explore a range of plausible future scenarios and their implications for addressing challenges such as sea level rise. SSPs are typically represented by different storylines, each describing a unique combination of demographic, economic, social, and technological factors that shape future development pathways.


Adaptation refers to the process of adjusting and preparing for the impacts of climate change, including sea level rise. It involves implementing strategies and measures to reduce vulnerability and increase resilience in order to cope with changing environmental conditions and minimize the negative effects on communities, ecosystems, and infrastructure.


Mitigation refers to actions taken to reduce or prevent the emission of greenhouse gases, which are the primary cause of climate change. In the context of sea level rise, mitigation efforts aim to address the root causes of rising sea levels by implementing policies and practices that reduce carbon emissions and promote the use of renewable energy sources, thereby minimizing the rate and magnitude of future sea level rise.
