Turning the Tide

Turning The Tide – Adapting to Climate Change in Coastal Communities 

A report by the Climate Center and the Norwegian Red Cross, with the IFRC, Bangladesh Red Crescent Society, Mexico Red Cross and Somalia Red Cross was launched on Thursday 4 November at COP26 showing the huge impact of climate change on coastal communities across the globe. In addition to extreme weather events, large areas are becoming uninhabitable, and millions of people have been displaced from their homes or are facing relocation.

The report includes first-hand accounts of remarkable and resilient people living in coastal areas in Mexico, Somalia, and Bangladesh. Heat, sea level rise, droughts or storms, the climate crisis is already pushing those communities towards the very limits of their future survival.

The tide can still be turned. The world urgently needs to step up and supply funding and other support for vulnerable coastal communities, so that they can adapt to climate change and become resilient. We still have the opportunity to transform today’s vulnerable coastal communities into ones that will thrive for decades to come
