Qatar's Beaches Among Top 20 Most Vulnerable to Sea Level Rise by 2100

Qatar is considered to be among the countries significantly impacted by global warming. A number of Qatar beaches are being named under ‘Top 10 Tourist Beaches’ expected to shrink the most by the year 2100.

Qatar’s Simaisma North Beach in Al Daayen ranks ninth on the list and its shoreline is anticipated to shrink by 298.6 metres by 2100.

The Gulf nation’s Al Thakeera Beach falls in tenth place which is located in Al Khor. Its shoreline is expected to shrink by 278.9 metres by the year 2100.

The ongoing issue of global warming is already causing significant disruptions to various ecosystems, including coastlines. Rising sea levels and other related factors threaten some of the world’s most touristic beaches.

On top of the list and predicted to be hitting the worst is Nigeria’s Landmark Beach located in the country’s largest city, Lagos. The West African country’s shoreline is expected to lose 918.3 metres by the year 2100.
