Rising Tides

Earth Report
S14:Ep325 mins2009

In Rising Tides, Earth Report examines British and Kenyan coastal communities living on the front line of climate change, and asks whether creating special conservation areas, known as “biosphere reserves,” can help provide answers. In the U.K., research has already led to the decision to give some farmland back to the sea by creating new areas of salt marsh, which will provide natural flood defenses for the future. Coastal communities around the world face similar predicaments – climate change and sea-level rise are affecting their coastlines.
