Climate change can change the way we live


According to Aaliyah Harris of CNN, climate change is making cities more susceptible to flooding.
A 2019 study states that global sea levels are expected to rise between two and seven feet over the course of the century and by 2100, at least 190 million people could be living in areas below the projected high-tide line.
The study warned that if the findings stand, then coastal communities worldwide must prepare themselves for much more difficult futures than may be currently anticipated.
Separate research concluded that if the world does nothing to mitigate sea level rise, coastal flooding could cause damage worth up to 20 per cent of global gross domestic product by 2100.
Hence, architects are adapting their designs to a new climate reality. Using sustainable materials and innovative techniques, these designs from across the world could be increasingly important in a future where flooding might be widespread.
