Cities that will be drowned by global warming


When UN climate negotiators meet for summit talks this month, there will be a new figure on the table: 3C.

Until now, global efforts such as the Paris climate agreement have tried to limit global warming to 2C above pre-industrial levels. However, with latest projections pointing to an increase of 3.2C by 2100, these goals seem to be slipping out of reach.

Asian cities will be worst affected

The regional impact of these changes is highly uneven, with four out of five people affected living in Asia.
