Liberia Among Coastal Countries to be Hit Worst by Sea Level Rise

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has warned that more critical infrastructure could be rendered un-usable within the next three to five years if immediate actions are not taken to tackle the evolving sea erosion in coastal counties.

EPA Executive Director Anyaa Vohiri said the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, the key electricity distribution center, the D. Twe High School, the West Point settlement, the Providence Island and a number of market places and transportation infrastructure risked being affected by sea erosion.

Madam Vohiri disclosed that so far, 674 households have been displaced due to sea erosion of coastal settlements and additional 30,000 families stand the risk of being affected, if no urgent action is taken to remedy the situation.
