Villages Close to Sea Bear the Brunt of Climate Change

The rise of the sea is causing soil salinisation which in turn makes farming impossible, unstable and unpredictable season patterns, temperature rise, floods, increased sea waves and other uncommon disasters linked to climate change.

Water from underground in most of the areas close to the sea is salty prompting people to look for the precious liquid from other places. Some hotels have either fixed a water desalinisation machine or buy fresh water from vendors daily for their customers.

The real visible problems have helped speed up people’s understanding of climate change although many still see the challenges as temporary.
