Inhabitants of low-lying islands face increased threats due to climate change as a result of
their higher exposure and lesser adaptive capacity. Sagar Island, the largest inhabited estuarine island
of Sundarbans, is experiencing severe coastal erosion, frequent cyclones, flooding, storm
surges, and breaching of embankments, resulting in land...
