Surging Seas Sea level rise analysis by Climate Central

Partnership with IDB Expands Risk Finder to Caribbean

November, 2017

Risk Finder is now expanded to include most Caribbean islands, plus Suriname and Guyana, using Climate Central's high-accuracy CoastalDEM elevation data. These additions were made possible async through support and collaboration from the Inter-American Development Bank. 

Climate Central's Surging Seas Risk Finder aims to provide citizens, communities and policymakers with easily accessible, science-based, local information to help you understand and respond to the risks of sea level rise and coastal flooding. This interactive toolkit includes maps, local sea level and flood risk projections, and potential impacts for land, population, internet infrastructure, and other variables. It analyzes and compares risks among different administrative units as a way to identify hot spots of concern. Extensive maps, tables, and figures are available for download.
