The Sea Level Rise Foundation was launched by the President of Seychelles, H.E. Mr. James Michel, at the First Global Island Partnership Strategy Meeting in Rome, Italy, on 25th September 2007 in response to the UN Secretary General’s high Level Session on Climate Change in New York.
The Sea-Level Rise Foundation aims to provide a mechanism for leveraging global attention on the impacts of climate change on small island states and other low-lying areas. The Sea Level Rise Foundation is registered as a non-profit organization based in Seychelles with an international board of trustees. All donations to the foundations will be gratefully acknowledged.
