Climate change: The new normal

A recent United Nations report found that 40 percent of the world’s population lives within 100 kilometres of a coast. This trend is expected to continue, with populations and commercial assets further concentrating in waterfront communities. At the same time, climate change is intensifying the impact of floods resulting from hurricanes and storm surges, directly threatening the social, economic and cultural security of a growing part of the world’s population.
