• How will global warming affect Maldives and Bangladesh?

  • Climate change severely threatens the existence of the Maldives as well as diminishing existing human capabilities on these islands. According to the World Bank, with future sea levels projected to increase in the range of 10 to 100 centimeters by the year 2100, the entire country could be submerged.

  • The Maldives and Bangladesh will be affected because sea levels will rise due to thermal expansion resulting in floods as there the land lies low. Initially they will be affected by storm surges which will flood their croplands with sea water, making them useless. Later the whole islands may be submerged.
