    Excerpt from the article by Anna Valmero:

    “For some, the future predicted by models is happening now,” adds Koko Warner, author of a policy brief on human mobility and climate change published by the UN University Institute for Environment and Human Security and the Nansen Initiative.

    Warner warns that coastal erosion is one of the effects of sea level rise that would directly impact communities living along shorelines, leading to loss of habitat and local sources of livelihood.
