Like many other deltas, Egypt is particularly vulnerable to the effects of global warming. A relative rise in sea-level of 1 m would submerge much of the delta region within 30 km of the coast during the next 100 years. Rising sea levels would have significant long-term impacts on physical, biological and socio-economic conditions of the Nile Delta. These include the damage and destruction of buildings near beaches, erosion of beaches, salt-water intrusion, and flooding more than 1,200 km2 of Egypt’s Delta Coastline. [less ▲]
