In Bangladesh alone a figure of 20 million over the period of time from the coastal area is likely to be displaced if there is one meter sea level rise

Climate change is particularly drastic for states like Bangladesh or the Netherlands - a great share of the land is located under sea level. But how do people in both countries deal with this threat, comparing for example the rich Netherlands with the developing Bangladesh? The Netherlands built dikes, polders and barriers and are thus relatively well protected against the impacts of climate change. For many people in Bangladesh, often only one option is left - they set out to find another livelihood elsewhere.
