Climate Change and the Future Impacts of Storm-Surge Disasters in Developing Countries
The implications of sea-level rise and storm surges for 84 developing countries and 577 of their cyclone-vulnerable coastal cities with populations greater than 100,000 are explored. Combining the most recent scientific and demographic information, they estimate the future impact of climate change on storm surges that will strike coastal populations, economies, and ecosystems. Focus is on the distribution of heightened impacts, because the authors believe that greater knowledge of their probable variation will be useful for local and national planners, as well as international donors.
