Sea level rise: Costa Rica coastal communities under threat

Year: 2005 Author: UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Sea level rise is an important indicator of climate change. A rise in sea level may result in flooding, salinisation of fresh water, coastal erosion and in some cases loss of land to the ocean. As depicted, some coastal communities in Costa Rica are particularly vulnerable to sea level rise.
