Nile Delta: Potential Impact of Sea Level Rise

Year: 2005 Author: Otto Simonett, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The potential impacts of sea level rise on the Nile Delta are expected to include a decline in water quality that would affect freshwater fish, the flooding of agricultural land and damage to infrastructure. This graphic shows the Nile Delta region as it is today (2002), the area as it would appear with a 0.5 m sea level rise, and the area as it would appear with a 1.0 m sea level rise.
