The Projected Economic Impact of Extreme Sea-Level Rise in Seven Asian Cities in 2030

Extreme rising sea levels and flooding is a threat to coastal cities. We selected seven cities in Asia that are economic centers and are located on or close to the coast to analyze how their gross domestic product (GDP) could potentially be impacted by extreme coastal flooding in 2030 with the business-as-usual (BAU) carbon-emission scenario, also called the RCP8.5 scenario. Our analysis suggests how the climate crisis may affect the economies of the cities analysed in less than one decade unless we act immediately to achieve a rapid reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
