SEA LEVEL RISE: SIMPLIFIER



1. What is the primary cause of global sea level rise?

• The primary cause of global sea level rise is the physical expansion of water as it warms. In recent decades, the contribution from meltwater flowing off Greenland and Antarctica has also become significant.

2. How much has the global sea level risen since 1880?

• Global sea levels have risen by approximately 21cm to 24cm since 1880.

3. What are the main impacts of rising sea levels on coastal communities?

• Rising sea levels threaten coastal properties, livelihoods, and lifestyles. They can cause erosion, flooding, and allow destructive storms to reach farther inland.

4. Which areas are most vulnerable to sea level rise?

• Low-lying countries and coastal communities are the most vulnerable to the impacts of rising sea levels.

5. Can technological means slow down the contribution of melting polar ice to sea level rise?

• Some believe that technological interventions could potentially slow down the melting of polar ice, thereby mitigating its contribution to sea level rise.

6. What actions can be taken to address sea level rise?

• Actions include reducing greenhouse gas emissions, investing in coastal defenses, and exploring innovative technological solutions to manage the impact of melting ice.

7. Why is global cooperation important in addressing sea level rise?

• Global cooperation is essential to develop effective strategies, share resources, and ensure that vulnerable regions receive the support needed to combat the effects of sea level rise.
