Effects of sea-level rise on water resources of small islands and low-lying coastal areas

Year: 2007 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The water resources of small islands and low-lying coastal areas are very susceptible to sea-level rise. This figure illustrates the direct impacts on the water resources sector, as well as the plethora of higher-order impacts which affect not only that sector but most, if not all, other sectors including health, transport and agriculture.
