The Government has built an embankment here to prevent the sea water from eroding the island but this is not a viable long term solution. The people living here will gradually be forced to move to other places.Locations:Asia-Ghoramara island-India-Indian Sundarbans-South Asia-West BengalDate:30 Mar, 2007Credit:© GreenpeaceMaximum size:1920px X 2560pxKeywords:Beaches-Climate (campaign title)-Climate change-Climate change impacts-Day-Erosion-Global warming-Huts-Islands-KWCI (GPI)-Mangroves-Outdoors-Sea level rise-TreesShoot:Climate Change Threatens the SundarbansThe Sundarbans is a fragile set of islands which is particularly vulnerable to the increasing threat of climate change.

This has resulted in increased flooding, threatening the local communities and agriculture as crops are swept away by floods or contaminated with water.
