UNEP Releases Video on Sea Level Rise and How Nature Can Help Protect Coastal Communities
This Video is Part Six of the Two Minutes on Oceans with Jim Toomey Series
The video demonstrates how coastal communities can adapt to sea level rise by restoring nature’s resilience. New research shows that sea level could rise between 0.5 to 2 meters towards the end of this century - threatening low-lying regions with floods and storm surges. The health of many ecosystems, which traditionally were able to cope with shifts in sea levels have been weakened, leaving them less able to protect coastal communities from these impacts. The video also offers ways to restore natural flood barriers, like coral reefs and mangroves, to protect vulnerable regions from sea level rise.
