How does global climate change affect the sundarbans?

The Sundarbans is the world’s largest mangrove forest. Global warming and climate change compounds the dangers to the Sundarbans. These low-lying mangrove forests are highly susceptible to the effects of sea-level rise-including inundation of coastal areas, increased exposure to storm surges, increased coastal erosion, and rising salinity in ground and surface waters.

Tropical cyclones, tidal flooding and the rising sea level around the Sunderbans have also affected the flora and fauna in the region.
