How to protect coastal areas from the impacts of climate changeProf. Roshanka Ranasinghe and his team of researchers from the UNESCO Institute for Water Education have recently developed a prediction model that provides a new way to estimate climate change-driven coastal erosion. It extends our understanding of what the next 100 years may hold for vulnerable coastal communities, and give us the means to better protect them. Move the world forward
