Our latest CIO Special report looks at the rising sea levels and the likely implications for economic activity and investment.
Topics covered include:
- Rising seas will compound other effects from climate change and ocean degradation. They will have major implications for the overall macroeconomic and policy outlook, and for investment.
- As well as causing population displacement, rising seas could have a direct impact on multiple sectors including food supply, tourism, real estate, transport and energy infrastructure. This could hurt global GDP.
- Adaptation strategies can reduce these impacts and will involve both technology and nature-based solutions. Substantial and coordinated investments will be needed, as well as financial transfers from developed to developing economies.
