Turning the tide: adapting to climate change in coastal communities

This report highlights the devastating impact of climate change on coastal communities across the globe. People living in the world’s coastal regions already face multiple and compounding risks from climate change. Sea levels are rising, coastal floods are becoming more severe, storms and cyclones are intensifying, and storm surge is reaching higher levels, further inland. In addition to extreme weather events, large areas are becoming uninhabitable, and millions of people have been or will be forced to leave their homes.

The report includes first-hand accounts of remarkable and resilient people living in coastal areas in Mexico, Somalia, and Bangladesh. Heat, sea level rise, droughts or storms, the climate crisis is already pushing those communities towards the very limits of their future survival.
