This paper examines the impact of global sea level rise (SLR) on the economic growth, migration, and tourism from various empirical studies and consolidates several sea level projections by 2100 under different scenarios.

Economic inequality, societal polarization, and intensifying environmental dangers are the top three trends that will shape global developments over the next ten years — not least of all this year says this report.

South Asia, comprising eight countries including Bangladesh, Maldives and Nepal, is affected by a range of natural disasters including floods, glacial lake outburst floods, storm surges, droughts, cyclones and heavy precipitation. These disasters take a huge toll as they displace thousands of people every year.

Climate change is the ultimate threat multiplier. It will aggravate fragility, contribute to social upheaval and even violent conflicts. The problem is the seven compound risks that emerge when the impacts of climate change interact with problems that many weak states are already facing.

Karachi, a city of around 20 million people, is facing a crisis of governance that is reflected in the poor state of service delivery, and unplanned and unsustainable urbanisation.

Migrating birds are responding to the effects of climate change by arriving at their breeding grounds earlier as global temperatures rise, research has found.

Climate change is having devastating impacts on communities’ lives, livelihoods and food security across South Asia. Its consequences are so severe that it is increasingly contributing to migration, and this incidence is likely to escalate much more in the years to come as climate change impacts become more serious.

Climate-related natural disaster shocks are expected to rise as the earth is getting warmer, which will adversely affect growth prospects globally.

This brief looks at the anticipated impacts of climate induced migration on efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) on climate change – SDG13. More specifically, this brief describes the SDG targets relating to climate change, and the particular challenges to each in the context of increasing climate-induced migration.

The state’s Irrigation and Public Health (IPH) has already submitted a detailed concept note to the Centre.
