The wave

Claudia Lai

Mauritius island, famous for its beautiful beaches and rich marine life, is facing the threat of climate change-induced sea-level rise like so many islands. Several communities that live along the coastal zone today must endure the impacts of sea-level rise such as recurrent flooding, higher tides and a decrease in land surface area. These coastal hazards invariably have severe repercussions on the communities’ livelihoods in addition to affecting their properties and assets

This painting depicts the high waves and erosion we are seeing today, largely caused by human activity, and the climate change that drives sea level rise.
