Sea Level Rise
Can the consequences of sea level rise be influenced by human behaviour?
1. Humans can influence the consequences of sea level rise only by building protective seawalls along the coast.
2. Humans can influence the consequences of sea level rise only by building higher and stronger buildings.
3. Humans are unable to influence the consequences of sea level rise.
4. Humans can influence the consequences of sea level rise by reducing human development activities at the coast and over-withdrawal of ground water and/or oil, by reducing the construction of dams along rivers and by reducing the degradation of natural coastal protection structures such as beaches, dunes, and mangrove forests.
