UNITED NATIONS — The number of people vulnerable to floods is expected to double to 2 billion worldwide by 2050 due to global warming, deforestation,
rising sea levels, and population growth in flood-prone areas, U.N. researchers warned Sunday.
The world will be warmer and wetter by mid-century, and the northern part of the Northern Hemisphere will likely see more storms, said Dr. Janos
Bogardi, founding director of the new institute, in the study made public by the university. Sea levels could rise, fed by melting glaciers and ice
caps, and extreme high-water levels could become more common, menacing small islands and coastal lowlands, he said.
