Mapping West Africa’s Low Elevation Coastal Zones

Although sea level rise and climate change are threatening coastlines around the world, it is difficult to plan for the impacts of these ecological disasters without more information at a local level. Spurring key stakeholders into action to combat and mitigate climate change can be a challenge when the threat is intangible. Mapping the areas potentially impacted by ecological changes can help communicate the projected impacts of sea level rise (SLR), climate change, and the urgency to take action.
