Climate Change - The Sundarbans

Climate change will affect people in many ways.

Sea levels are rising more than twice as fast as the global average in the Sunderbans.
The Sundarbans are a low-lying delta region made up of 200 small islands in the Bay of Bengal.
Around 13 million impoverished Indians and Bangladeshis live in the Sundarbans  .
Scientists predict much of the region could be underwater in 15 to 25 years, forcing the largest ever human migration in history.
2013 study by the Zoological Society of London found the Sundarbans coastline retreating at about 200 metres a year.
