Team Udayavani, Aug 1, 2020, 2:15 PM IST

According to a recent study, Coastal flooding across the world is set to rise by around 50 percent due to climate change in the next 80 years

The study claims that there could be a ten-fold increase in extreme weather events that cause floods, such as storms and tsunamis. Also, this would threaten an area with an economy worth up to $14.2 trillion.

The land area exposed to an extreme flood event will increase by more than 250,000 square kilometres globally

The study found that close to 68 per cent of the coastal area likely to be flooded will be caused by tide and storm events, while only 32 per cent will be caused by regional sea level rises.
