Extreme coastal flooding due to climate change could threaten assets up to $14.2 trillion worldwide and affect up to 287 million of the world’s population by 2100, according to a new study.

Australian researchers estimate that floods that occur once every 100 years could now occur once every 10 years in 2100, mainly as a result of sea-level rise.

Other places will experience a larger increase in flood risk, including northwest Europe, Australia, New Zealand, China, India, Southeast Asia, southeast Africa and North America.
