Sea rise alert in Bahrain

Bahrain could be amongst the worst casualties of rising sea levels brought on by climate change, experts warned, reported Gulf Daily News. Small island states will suffer most, said United Nations resident coordinator and UN Development Programme resident representative in Bahrain Sayed Aqa. Current estimates of future global sea-level rise at five millimetres a year represent a rate that is two to four times higher than what has been experienced globally over the past 100 years.
