Damage is often so severe that families abandon houses and look to build anew or stay with other family members. Sea walls are increasingly being built to protect homes and land from king tides, which have increased significantly in the last decade. Inundation continues to affect sources of fresh drinking water and crops across the Marshall Islands.Locations:Majuro Atoll-Marshall Islands-Micronesia-Pacific IslandsDate:14 Nov, 2018Credit:© Genevieve French / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5330px X 3553pxKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Climate change-Climate change impacts-Day-Erosion-Flood defenses-Islands-KWCI (GPI)-One person-Outdoors-Sea level rise-Victims-WallsShoot:Climate Change Impacts in the Marshall IslandsKing tides and coastal flooding have been worsening in the Marshall Islands. Located on low-lying coral atolls, these islands are extremely susceptible to sea level rise and king tides. Adaptation efforts across Majuro Atoll are already being widely used - including building sea walls, elevating houses and climate-proofing infrastructures. King tides have affected the Rita end of Majuro Atoll particularly with many houses in the area damaged and abandoned due to flooding and coastal erosion.
