  • Unknown author (Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA), IDRC, Ottawa, ON, CA, 2015)
    Large tracts of land at low elevation make deltas vulnerable to climate change impacts like sea level rise. With some of the highest population densities in the world, deltas are also subject to the stresses of urbanization ...
