While Coastal Regulation Zone notifications regulate a 500 metre horizontal region from the high-tide line, the SMP lays down a vertical impact of the sea-level rise

This report discusses in detail the occurrence of coastal land salinity, its impact on crop yield and environment, and various management techniques to mitigate the adverse impacts, including those of coastal flooding arising from storm surges and anticipated climate change.

Several communities that once lined Liberia’s coast are now under the Atlantic Ocean and the country risks losing more communities, infrastructures and key landmarks to the sea, if nothing is immed

Coastal areas have been centers of human activity throughout history and current trends indicate that migration toward these zones is continuing.

The aim of this assessment report is twofold, such that it: maps the migration– environment nexus in Kenya by looking at human mobility due to environmental change; and examines existing policy and legal frameworks and offers guidance in mainstreaming migration in Kenya’s national planning of different sectors and at different levels.

The Earth has gained coastal land equivalent to the size of Jamaica in the past 30 years with man-made construction outpacing erosion caused by rising sea levels, mapping data showed on Thursday.

Earth's surface gained 115,000 km2 of water and 173,000 km2 of land over the past 30 years, including 20,135 km2 of water and 33,700 km2 of land in coastal areas. Here, we analyse the gains and losses through the Deltares Aqua Monitor — an open tool that detects land and water changes around the globe.

The rapid rise in sea level and global warming has forced the residents of a tiny native American village to abandon their ancestral home and move to the mainland.
