Chennai Floods are a wakeup call for India. We need to course correct. According to a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2021, rising sea levels threaten to submerge 12 coastal cities in the country by the end of the century. A dozen Indian cities, including Mumbai, Chennai, Kochi and Visakhapatnam, could be nearly three feet underwater by the end of the century, IPCC report warned. And the risks aren’t just theoretical. More than seven million coastal farming and fishing families are already feeling the effects. Coastal erosion, exacerbated by rising seas, is estimated to lead to the loss of about 1,500 square kilometres of land by 2050. This erosion eats away at valuable agricultural areas and threatens the very existence of coastal communities. The vulnerability of Indian coastal zones is further highlighted by the fact that low-lying coastal areas and river deltas are highly susceptible to increased flooding. Mumbai, Kolkata, and Chennai, with their dense populations and infrastructural significance, face a heightened risk of more frequent and severe floods. This could displace millions, impacting livelihoods and infrastructure.
