Experts warn of rise in sea levels and impact on our region

Experts warn of rise in sea levels and impact on our region - Experts have warned of the acceleration of rising sea levels and its impact on the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, where a third of the population lives on 10% of the Mediterranean coast. According to data, by 2050, inhabitants and infrastructures will have to adapt to deal with the risks of submersion and flooding.

For 2050, forecasts predict a rise in temperatures of 2.5 to +5.5 degrees. According to experts, “coastal erosion and marine flooding are therefore to be taken very seriously and placed under close surveillance”. Since January 1st, 2023, a new law has somewhat upset the rules for owners wishing to sell their property. They will now have to provide a statement of risks and pollution (ERP), which includes the risk of marine submersion in the coastal zone. To find out the risks close to home and to obtain the document, the Georisques.gouv.fr website establishes the list of the municipalities concerned and the vulnerable sectors.
