More than 200 million people worldwide live along coastlines less than 5 metres above sea level. By the end of the 21st century this figure is estimated to increase to 400 to 500 million.
Building Resilient Coastal Communities
For a Thriving Blue Planet
We see climate adaptation as a significant opportunity to evolve our relationship with our environment.
Climate Change will have disproportionate effects on communities that live close to the sea, affecting their ability to meet basic needs like water, food and physical safety. At the same coastal areas will have an increasing role to play in transport, food production and energy. We, at BlueO2, believe that creating resilient coastal communities is vital in the transformation needed towards a thriving blue planet.
