2009 IESS - Assessment of the Impacts of Coastal Inundation Due to Climate Change in the Dansoman Coastal Communities of Accra

Inundation and the episodic flooding caused by spring tide in low-lying coasts are expected to exacerbate as a result of sea level rise caused by global warming. Both human development and natural habitats are at risk. The coastal terrain may become inundated, beaches eroded, coastal infrastructure damaged and people injured or displaced. Sea level rise is a significant and growing threat to the coastal communities of Dansoman in Accra due to its low lying terrain.
