10% of the world's population (780 million people) live in coastal areas that are less than 10 meters above sea level. Rising seas and increased coastal flooding will have a direct effect on these communities, putting the people who live there at great risk. This interactive tool provides a clear and granular view of sea-level rise and coastal flood hazards, both locally and globally, to illustrate how communities will be affected in the years to come.
Sea level rise is a necessary factor to consider when investing in the Blue Economy. It is important that we understand its projected impacts so that capital can be deployed effectively.
