CHENNAI: A sea level rise by even one metre in 2050 will have a serious impact on infrastructure, wetlands and lands along the Tamil Nadu coast line, says a study by the Centre for Development Finance.

The report concentrated on the impact of sea level rise as a result of climate change and financial implications of sea level rise on existing and proposed infrastructure along the coast.
